There is a wide assortment of great peaks you can climb in Peru. And on this 2 day adventure, I would like to guide you to the summit of one of the most amazing: the Misti Volcano (5,825m).

Also known as Putina, the Misti volcano is an amazing peak. It stands tall and intimidating, and with its last eruption happening in 1985, there is an aura of unbridled power surrounding it. However, on this trip, you will get to make your way all the way to the top of this great volcano and look out at the sensational landscape spread out before you.

Beginning in Arequipa at 8:00 am, we will pick you up and drive for approximately 3 hours in a comfortable 4×4 truck to Aguada Blanca (4,250m). We will proceed along the Aguada Blanca route to the Misti volcano’s base camp (4,800m), where we will spend the night in a tent.

The following day, we will wake up very early and begin our ascent of the Misti volcano. The climb from base camp to the summit will take approximately 5-6 hours. After you’ve spend some time at the impressive summit, which includes active fumaroles, we will start our descent. It will take up approximately 1 hour to get back to base camp. And from there, it will take us another 1 hour to reach the vehicles. Finally, we will drive for back to Arequipa.

Participants should have some previous mountaineering experience. They should also be in good physical condition.

Climbing the Misti volcano is as thrilling a climb as you can get. To experience it for yourself, just send me a request.

I also lead a similar 2 day climbing expedition to the summit of the nearby Nevado Chachani peak.



The peak's base camp.
