Raíces, the road to the highest town of Mexico

Located in the Municipio of Zinacantepec, in Mexico, Raíces is the highest town in the country, at an elevation of 3.531m (11,919ft) above the sea level. It’s one of the highest towns accessible by car on Earth.

The road to the town is called Ruta 10. It’s asphalted. It has a well-deserved reputation for being dangerous because of unpredictable snowstorms and blizzards, and driving under these conditions, can be extremely challenging.
