I joined a group of three other people to climb Chachani and we went with Waiky Adventours. The Waiky staff are organised, professional and know what they are doing. Due to unseasonable heavy snow the 4X4 that took us from Arequipa couldn't get to the...More

A must when visiting Arequipa, but beware of the altitude and get off the bus slowly to avoid having a headache. Really beautiful and interesting.

This was an en-route stop for us, not a trek or climb. There's no need to climb to the summit to enjoy a visit to Chachani, this was therefore for the views so there were no undue physical demands. Whatever your reason to visit it's...More

When you reach the summit,you can enjoy amazing views on Arequipa, El Misti, Pichu Pichu and all other volcanoes around (even Coropuna, Ampato, Sabancaya, Hualca Hualca, .. ). Of course you can also claim that you've reached the golden 6000 height ! And this without...More
