Description Chachani Volcano Tour Arequipa

With the Chachani Volcano Tour Arequipa, you can climb one of the most accessible mountains of more than 6,000 m in the world, it is the favorite of all travelers because the ascent to its summit is simple and can be done in one day with an expert. Ideal for lovers of heights and risk sports.

In the tour VOLCAN CHACHANI, is a snow-capped mountain of 6,057 meters above sea level, of volcanic origin, located 60 km from Arequipa, in the Peruvian Andes. It is a strato volcano formed by four summits that form an extensive chain of peaks. The snow-capped Chachani is an imposing volcanic strato formed by four summits: main or northwest summit (6,057 m), north summit or Los Angeles peak (5,852 m), southeast summit or Trigo mountain (5,820 m) and west summit or La Horqueta (5,484 m), which form an extensive chain of peaks. Due to global warming, the summit of the volcano is gradually losing its glaciers.

Like Misti, the “Sillar”, a white volcanic stone used for the construction of churches and colonial houses, is extracted from Chachani. It has a name of Quechua origin “Chachani”, which translated into Spanish means “Brave” or “Courageous”. The Chachani is a volcano that is still active. Although climbing this volcano is quite simple, you must take into account the necessary precautions, as well as acclimatize beforehand for at least 2 days in the city of Arequipa. You can enjoy all this on the Chachani Volcano tour.
