Mexico has three main mountain ranges that extend country wide; they are the West Sierra Madre, the East Sierra Madre and the South Sierra Madre.

The highest mountain in Mexico is in fact a dormant volcano named Pico de Orizaba; it’s 5,636 meters (18,490 feet) tall, the third tallest in America, and is located between the states of Veracruz and Puebla. Other magnificent mountain locations include: the Popocatépetl, Iztaccíhuatl and Nevado de Toluca, volcanoes in the State of Mexico and Puebla; the Huasteca in Nuevo León and San Luis Potosí; the Copper Canyon in Chihuahua; and the Sumidero Canyon in Chiapas.

We have cities surrounded by mountains, like Monterrey; towns in the top of mountains, like Real de Catorce; railroads that go through mountains; mountains in the desert and near the beach; volcanoes, hills, canyons, valleys, etc.
