Nevado Chachani, Peru, 2 Day Guided Ascent

Nevado Chachani, Peru, 2 Day Guided Ascent | Peru

Come and join IFMGA certified guide Carlos on an exciting 2 day climb of the beautiful Nevado Chachani peak in the Andes of Peru.

Not specified


2 Days

May - Nov




A sensational peak in the Andes of Peru, the Nevado Chachani (6,075m), makes for a great climb.

Scaling this great mountain will take only 2 days. Hence making this trip perfect for any ambitious climber with a few free days to reach the summit of the Nevado Chachani.

Our adventure will begin after we pick you up from your lodging at Arequipa. In a comfortable, private vehicle we will take you to the Chachani base camp (5,060m). The drive should take approximately 2.5 hours. Once we reach the base camp, we will climb for approximately 2 hours to camp 1, (5,175m), where we will spend the night in tents.

On the second day of the ascent, we will wake up at 3:00 am. After that, we will eat breakfast and slowly and safely make the approximately 5 – 6 hour ascent to the Nevado Chachani summit. From there, you will get to enjoy some sensational views under the morning sun. You will get to gaze far out at the wonderful landscape that includes a magnificent old crater. Afterwards, we will make our descent back to base camp, which will take approximately 1.5 hours. From there, we will trek for an hour to the transport and drive back to Arequipa.

Due to the size of the mountain and the technical aspects of the ascent, which include the use of crampons and an ice axe, participants should have some prior climbing experience. You should also be in good physical condition as well.

If you are looking for a great climb in the Andes of Peru, then the Nevado Chachani is for you. To enjoy this 2 climb, all you have to do is send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you.
