List of mountains in Mexico

Main article: Geography of Mexico

This article comprises three sortable tables of the major mountain peaks of Mexico.

Topographic elevation is the vertical distance above the reference geoid, a precise mathematical model of the Earth's sea level as an equipotential gravitational surface. Topographic prominence is the elevation difference between the summit and the highest or key col to a higher summit. Topographic isolation is the minimum great circle distance to a point of higher elevation.

This article defines a significant summit as a summit with at least 100 meters (328.1 feet) of topographic prominence, and a major summit as a summit with at least 500 meters (1640.4 feet) of topographic prominence. An ultra-prominent summit is a summit with at least 1500 meters (4921.3 feet) of topographic prominence. There are 27 ultra-prominent summits in Mexico.

The following tables are under active development. Please suggest changes and additions on the discussion page.

Highest major summits

The following sortable table lists the 30 highest mountain peaks of Mexico with at least 500 meters (1640.4 feet) of topographic prominence. Three major summits exceed 5000 meters (16,404.2 feet) of elevation, 8 exceed 4000 meters (13,123.4 feet), and 25 exceed 3000 meters (9842.5 feet).

Of these 30 highest major summits, 4 are located in Puebla, 4 in Oaxaca, 4 in Coahuila, 3 in México, 3 in Jalisco, 3 in Nuevo León, 2 in Chiapas, 2 in Michoacán, 2 in Querétaro, and one each in Distrito Federal, Morelos, Tlaxcala, Veracruz, Guerrero, Guanajuato, Durango, Baja California, and Aguascalientes.
