 Climbing Mismi Mountain
  ( 3 day 2 nights)

Summary:The ascent of Mismi can be done as a one-off or it can serve as a fascinating acclimatisation expedition for those planning to go on to do higher or tougher ascents. Mismi rises from the puna (high paramo) on the north side of the Colca Valley & virtually opposite the village of Chivay. The vegetation hereabouts seems pretty lush after the arid lanscapes which predominate to the south & west. During the expedition we'll see typical Andean fauna, including alpaca & llama. Besides summiting the mountain, Misti provides a secondary objective; to visit the source of the world's greatest river system, the Amazon, which satellite mapping has shown to be located on the mountain's flanks.
Intineray Day by Day:(B)= breakfast / (L)= lunch / (D)= dinner


Day 1: Arequipa - Chivay: At approximately 8 am we will head towards the Colca Valley, we will take the ancient route that is more interesting than the current one, as the ancient highway happens to be between two volcanoes; Misti and Chachani and allows us to enjoy the very rich scenery. Also there is the possibility of seeing guanacos – South American camels which are almost extinct in Peru
After travelling for approximately 2 hours, we will arrive at the main highway that goes to the Colca Valley. In this area named Pampas Cañahuas will be able to see the vicuñas that are a type of camel, they are not domesticated that they live freely inside the Aguada Blanca and Salinas National Reserve. .
On this part of the trip it is possible to use the bathrooms (WC) which are situated in the area of Chasqui Pampa. We will then continue towards the Sumbay Community at 4127 above sea level. Where there are rock paintings that date between 5800 B.C. to 3000 A.C and it is 7 km from the main highway and 88 km from the City of Arequipa. Here we can find more than 500 remains of rock paintings that represent daily activities of the epoch.
After the visit to the rock paintings we will head towards to Tocjra Pampa where we will be able to observe different birds such as: the guillemot, the black hibis, the Andean duck, guayatas and Andean gulls, etc.
Next to this area we will be able to find a group of llamas and alpacas.
On this journey we will travel at an altitude of 4850 meters (view point of the volcanoes) where it is possible to appreciate the different volcanoes or as it is called in south Peru, the Volcanic belt or ring of fire, also we can appreciate the mountain range of the central Andes.
