Chachani, Arequipa

(4.5/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Put your climbing skills to the ultimate test by climbing Chachani, a 1,963 m (6,440 ft) tall volcanic mountain near Arequipa. Many tour agencies offer guided trips to the summit of Chachani, a popular but challenging climb for those unaccustomed to the high altitude. Try biking down the mountainside roads, or camp near a scenic viewpoint. Enjoy the stunning views from the summit, and take a moment to photograph the surrounding area and Mount Misty in the background.
