Teotepec, the highest mountain in Guerrero

102

It exceeds 3,350 meters above sea level and is located on the highest edge of the Sierra Madre del Sur, between Tlacotepec and Atoyac.

The Cerro del Teotepec, from the Nahuatl “hill of God”, is the highest mountain on record in Guerrero, as it exceeds 3,350 meters above sea level.

This well-known mountain is located on the highest edge of the Sierra Madre del Sur, hidden between the municipalities of Heliodoro Castillo (Tlacotepec) and Atoyac de Álvarez.

The closest town to the hill is Puerto del Gallo, which is reached by the Atoyac highway, on the Costa Grande.

In comparisons, the Teotepec hill exceeds the height of Tepozteco, an archaeological zone located in Morelos, which has an altitude of 2,300 meters above sea level.

The vegetation of the place is made up of pines and cedars, and given its height, the cold and the mist flood the environment, forming a scene like no other.

Every November 20, the hill brings together residents of the surrounding area who traditionally hold an evening to celebrate the religious festival of Christ the King of the Universe.
