Dead Man Hill
 
Set of hills whose formation seems to draw a laid man, hence its name which comes from a legend of our ancestors who affirmed that giants lived in this land. It covers 3800 hectares approximately.

12 kilometers west of the city of Aguascalientes, by the federal road 70, you can access the Picacho hill (the feet of the dead man) which reaches an elevation of 2440 meters over the sea level and offer a magnificent view of the valley. On the other side, watching the hills from the city, we can enjoy very beautiful sunsets, giving a spectacular and exceptional experience and which have been awarded with the second place in the world for most beautiful sunsets.

It’s a place traditionally used for trekking, horse riding, camping, observation of fauna and flora and the event called “Light the feet of the dead” accompanying the celebrations of the festival of the “calaveras” (tail lights).

On the bottom of the hills, on the eastern side is a monolith, called “La Muela” (the molar), which is an ideal to practice rock climbing and rappel, since it has several paths in its walls about 20 meters high with various levels of difficulty.
