The remains of a mummified mountaineer were found at the Pico de Orizaba volcano in the state of Puebla, in Central Mexico.
The Pico de Orizaba, is a stratovolcano, the highest mountain in Mexico and the third highest in North America, after Mount McKinley of the United States, and Mount Logan of Canada. It rises 5,636 metres (18,491 ft) above sea level in the eastern end of the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt, on the border between the states of Veracruz and Puebla.
The volcano is currently dormant but not extinct with the last eruption taking place during the 19th century. It is the second most prominent volcanic peak in the world after Africa’s Mount Kilimanjaro.
The human remains may be older than 50 years, according to government sources and were found at 4,300 meters (2.6 miles) above sea level.
