Mexico's third highest mountain, Iztaccihuatl or Ixta, is situated north of Popocatépetl between the capital and Puebla. The name can be translated as “the white lady”, since when viewed from either the west or the east the profile of the mountain appears like a lying women with head, chest, knees, and feet. The best weather conditions for summit attempts are in the early months of the year. Because of the high altitude of more than 5000 meters enough time for acclimatization should be taken.
