#2 of 7 in Parks in Arequipa
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.

Where to stay in Arequipa

Most accommodations in Arequipa cluster on the east side of the Chili River. The historical center offers the best selection of options, with plenty of budget hostels and mid-range hotels scattered throughout its streets. For something quieter, look north to the neighborhoods of Zemanat and San Jacinto. If you're looking for a suburban experience, stay in the western neighborhood of Yanahuara.
