Tèyotl is the oldest part of the Iztaccihuatl volcano, now separated from Izta by a col known as Texcal.

It is one of the oldest volcanoes in Mexico, calculated to be 20,000 years old. The name Tèyotl, from the Nahuatl, means "where the rocks are born".

Not surprising given its age, Tèyotl is a very eroded peak. There are many routes to the summit, all very easy.
