ITINERARY: Climb Chachani Volcano
Day 1: Arequipa - Base CampWe leave Arequipa at 8:30 am by 4WD and drive for approximately three hours(5000m) to the start of the climb. After we have eaten some lunch, we climb for two hours to reach the campsite (5300m). We establish the base camp for our acclimatisation to the altitude. The temperature to this level oscillates between +5C and - 15C, depending on the time of year.
Day 2: Base Camp - ArequipaWe begin the climb to the summit around at 2:30am, after a hot coca tea. An hour later we get the first pass, we cross the north face of the Angel Peak. From here Arequipa can be seen. Then we ascend toward the south face of Fatima peak; next we cross another short snow extension, and we do the final climb to Chachani's summit. The climb takes between 5 and 6 hours, and then we return to the base camp which takes about 3 hours. We pick up the equipment that we left behind and walk down to where transportation awaits for us. We arrive at Arequipa about 3 pm.
