Description Misti Volcano Trekking Tour

With the Misti Volcano Trekking Tour, you can make a high altitude climb and climb the MISTI VOLCANO which is located at the foot of the Chili Valley at 2,400 meters above sea level within the National Reserve of Salinas and Aguada Blanca. To climb this volcano no technical preparation is needed since it is not a technical mountain, it is a strato volcano composed of ashes and volcanic lava. This tour is ideal for extreme sports lovers.

The only difficulty to climb MISTI VOLCANO will be the volcanic ashes and sand that in some cases form dunes. The fact that we find these elements in the volcano makes our ascent a little more difficult and forced. Its age dates back approximately 800 thousand years and it is said that in colonial times it was known as “volcano without a name”. According to the myths, the ethnic groups that lived near the crater had to flee their lands because of the explosion of the volcano and when they returned home they took its name as a kind of reprimand. All this you can do in the Misti Volcano tour.

It is also said that it was called Machu Putina which in indigenous languages means “Old volcano”. This is due to the duality in the Andean cosmovision, since 40 kilometers away is the Huayna Putina, which means “young volcano”. However, it is not known since when it began to be called Misti, which in Quechua means “Creole or white man”. It is said that it was given this name because the city of Arequipa is called “The White City”, due to its buildings made of white ashlar.

An eruption is not expected during our ascent.
