What is the best hike in Tepoztlan

Here is my plan:

I will be taking a bus from Mexico City to Cuernavaca and then to Tepoztlan (is there a direct bus to Tepoztlan?)

I will have around 3-4 hours to spend in Tepoztlan, I will be taking another bus to Puebla from Cuernavaca in the evening.

Which hike do you recommend? I want to have the aerial view of the main cathedral/church from the top. Can I get it from the hike to the Pyramid?

Yes, you can see the whole town from above if you climb to the pyramid.

You can take the bus from the Mercado Adolfo Lopez Mateos in Cuernavaca direct to Tepoztlan.

I was there in February and wrote a little bit about it:

Hi Peter! What a coincidence - actually I asked that question only after checking out your post. I couldn't see that famous panoramic view of the town among your photos of Tepoztlan. So I wondered if it's all covered in trees or something like your photos from the hike to the pyramid.

By the way, I have checked out your other posts and they are all really comprehensive and very useful for me to plan my trips as I'm also interested in photography. Many thanks for putting them all together! I had sent you a message as well.

Hi,

You can see the whole town from up there, there is a bit of an opening off to one side away from the Pyramid, from there, you can see the whole valley. It would look something like this view:

I must have missed your message -- did you send it to me here?

Too bad you aren't going later and have the opportunity to attend their Carnaval (2/24 to 2/28 this year). We lucked out last year and managed to be there for the festivities. The following photo albums will possibly give you some ideas:

Great Pueblo Magico and we found the residents to be very friendly! Have a great time!
