Bergsteigen Arequipa


Summit: 6.075 m/19.925 ft
Difficulty: Easy (F)
Duration: 2 days

It is safe to say that the Chachani Vulcano (6.075 m/19.925 ft) is the easiest 6000er of Peru and it surely is one of the easiest on Earth. During the last years it has had only a couple of weeks of snow on its summit during the off-season (Febuary/March) so it is highly unlikely you will need crampons, ice picks and you won't need to be roped on.
Careful though: becuause Arequipa is only at approx. 2.300 m/7.545 ft and the high camp at 5.000 m/16.400 ft, proper previous acclimatization is necessary.
