Climbing the Picchu Picchu in 2 days
We leave at 9:00am with a four wheel drive and drive for about 3 hours to the starting point of our climb, close to the lagunas de Salinas at an altitude of 4300m. In about 2 or 3 ours we walk to the base camp at about 4700m.
The next day we leave at 5:00am to walk for four or five hours to the ridge at 5664m with just a small day-pack. For about an hour you can admire the Misti, Chachani and Ubinas and the colours of the Picchu Picchu.
In one hour we walk back to the base camp, where we eat something and pack the tents and our belongings. In about 2 hours we walk back to the car, that is waiting for us to bring us back to Arequipa.
This 2 day tour includes:
The price of this tour depends on the size of the group and the guide. We always use experienced guides, that know these mountains well. For some mountains like the Ampato, Coropuna and most of the time the Chachani special safety measures are required. In this case we always use a well trained (official mountain) guide.
The Misti, Picchu Picchu, Ubinas and Chachani in the dry season however are "easy" to climb and don't need any special precautions. For these mountains we can organise a tour for you with licensed (official mountain guide) or unlicensed (but experienced and qualified) guides.
