Pre Symposium Expedition
For those more adventurous, before the symposium, we have planned a backpacking expedition to The Nevado de Toluca. It is located about 80 kilometres (50 mi) west of Mexico City near the city of Toluca.
With 4680 meters above sea level, is one of the highest peaks of Mexico after Pico de Orizaba, Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl. The Nevado de Toluca is considered a National Natural Park, with impressive mountain views and amazing forest trails to hike through.
