Climbing chachani volcano 6075m

2 days / 1 nights



Duration of the tour: 2 – 3 days
Difficulty               : Medium
Altitude in feet       : 19931.102 ft (6075 m.)
A 55 km from the City of Arequipa (34, 1754 miles)
Type of volcano: Stratum volcano
The snow-capped Chachani Volcano has an altitude of 6075 meters; it is located near to the City of Arequipa.
This snow-capped volcano is interesting because it is a mountain more than 6000 meters above sea level and it is not a technical mountain, you can reach the summit in 2 days.
The snow-capped Chachani volcano is extinct, some times during the year we can see snow on the summit. From our point of view, the fact of going by 4x4 on first day from 2300 meters (City of Arequipa) to 5000 meters and then sleeping at 5200 meters …..This creates many possibilities:
- There are some people who think that sleeping at 5200 meters on the first night is very high and so they sleep at 4600/4700 m.
- There are other people who think that spending more time at altitude is worse, and so, those that have a good acclimatization to the altitude and experience, climb this mountain in hours … they leave at 11:30 pm by 4x4 from the City of Arequipa and arrive at 3.30 in the morning at 5000m. Then they climb up to the summit until 9:30 and make their descent to the car at 5000 m. in 3 hours and then they return the City of Arequipa.
- There are other people who prefer to do it in 3 days; this option is secure for the people who are not already acclimatized to the altitude.

The climbing tour towards the volcanoes in the region of Arequipa are organized bearing in mind of quality standards, and safety.
Remember that to be able to do an ascent at altitude a sufficient acclimatization is needed. In all of our programs of ascent up the volcanoes and snow-capped mountains in Arequipa, we assume that, our clients have given themselves sufficient time to acclimatize before the trek. Nevertheless if you are not acclimated to the altitude, you must consult with us about the ascents for every snow-capped mountain or volcano trek.
Our goal is not only to sell climbing tours, our goal is that our clients arrive at the summit of the volcanoes and snow capped peaks on the climbing tours. In order to do this it is necessary at the time of the consultation for the climbing tour, that you tell us if you are acclimatized to the altitude.
If already you are acclimatized we can do the ascent and follow the program and you can. And if not, it does not matter, we can add one or two more days to the same program. If you do not have a lot of experience we recommend to you to do an ascent in private service and the guide will be able to take you up to the summit slowly to the suit your rhythm.
The programs on our website about ascent are only programs, as these can be adapted to the physical experience and acclimatization of each of our clients.
Our guides are trained and qualified in the High Mountain School in the region of Huaraz.

The porter will carry the following camping equipment of the customers: Tents, cooking equipment ,sleeping bags and mattresses.

type of service

Private Service: Designed for those who only want to stay with the people you know for example you and your partner, only two people will be on the climbing tour. Of course this is a more expensive service.

This service is more personalized, the guide will adapt himself to your rhythm, the guide will teach you (if you would like) the small tricks of the mountain, for example, different skills of world basic ascents.

On this service, you will not climb the mountain with another client that has more or less experience than you. The guide will try to take you as far as possible up to the summit.

Example : if you are just 2 of you , you will be in the mountain : 2 customers + private guide and private porter + private transport and private driver.

If you are 3 or 4 customers is the same. and remember if you are more than 4 people we add one assitent guide.

Shared Service: This the classic service offered by the most travel agencies in Arequipa sorry but Pablo tour don´t Organise this cane of service.

This is designed for people of different nationalities on the tour, (for every 5 participants there is a guide) and is an economic service. The negative aspect of this service is that, the participants have different levels of physical Shape and experience in mountain; some customers has good physical shape, some are very good and others don´t have any experience in mountain . There are some cases where there are the people with a lot of experience who take part on a shared service trip, and at the same time in the same group there are other people who have no experience, nor a good physical shape, in our experience the people with less experience hardly ever reach the summit or never arrive to the summit.

The most travel agencies in arequipa pool their customers with other travel agencies and like this they form a group and each couple have diferent physical shape , different skills in mountain, also they receive some time diferent information abouth the same mountain.

For these reasons we prefer organise just Private service because like this you will have more advantage to arrive to the summit.

We never pool our customers with other travel companies.

Our treks and climbing in mountains leave just on private service.
