Gorgeous challenging mountain hike to #ElTepozteco, the pyramid above the tiny #pueblomagico #Tepoztlan. Its more of a climb than a hike so take your time. The surrounding mountain jungle/forest is gorgeous. See some pics in the photo album linked below this post.
Wiki sez it was erected in honor of Tepoztecatl, the #Aztec god of the alcoholic beverage #pulque. I was dyin but it was #soworthit - wide open view of Cuernavaca and the valley of Mexico.
You can hike to the top for free, but you have to pay to actually climb on the pyramid. This isn't completely clear in the info sign at the bottom of the mountain and its a drag to realize this at the top if you forget your pesos.
Save some time for a #michelada and#temescal (sweat lodge) and of course, pulque in the town when you are done.
Here is a link to my photo album for this trip.
