We are a couple of 23 and 26 and after A LOT of research here on Tripadvisor, we decided to climb Misti (and not Chachani). Since we read that for many people it was the hardest thing they had ever done, we were very well...More

The views of this Volcano is just amazing! A must visit if you visit Arequipa. You can see this literally from any part of the city!

It's a breath taking volcano. You can see it rising up behind the city everywhere. It is a beautiful natural phenomenon.

We had a great view of Misti from Mirador Carmen Alto location. Misti is a old volcano with a height of 5,822 m / 19,101 ft. Quite spectacular to see.
