DAY 01:

  • 08:30 hrs –Pick up from your hotel at the coordinated hour. We will try to have an early departure from Arequipa at an early hour, to take a route right up the front face of the large mountain.
  • 10:00 hrs – We will start the trek from the altitude of 1,300 meters after taking a brief break to adapt ourselves to the chance of altitude. Today we will be walking for about 6 hours before we arrive to our camping spot.
  • 15:00 hrs – We will arrive to our base camp, which is known as the Eagles Nest, which stands at a height of 4,610 meters. From that great vantage point, we will enjoy some amazing views of the city and valley below us. In the night we will get some nice night time shots of the city.

  • 09:00 hrs - We will finally arrive to the crest of the mountain around mid morning. The crest is at an immense altitude of 5,825 meters, so we will get some truly spectacular views of the Volcano Mountain Range all around us. After resting for a bit, we will want to get back on our way, returning by the huge crater at the peak to have a good look at the inverted dome at the top. We will also have our breakfast for the day at the top.
