"Went with Waiki tours. We were driven to the 5000m mark, then walked for 45mins with our packs to camp. Yes, I say walk rather than hike because it was pretty much flat. We then had all afternoon to rest, aclimatize, and eat. Went to bed at 5pm, but didn't succeed in sleeping. Got up at 1am, a quick bite to eat and drink, and we were off. The weather was perfect without any wind and a mostly full moon. Reached the peak after a tiring 4hrs and 15mins, just before sunrise. Spectacular sunrise and views all around. Came down to camp in 1 hour. Rested for a few hours, packed up, and went to await " - Nevado Chachani, PabloBruneau, Aug 30, 2018
"Did this hike with Waiki tours. Reasonable prices and good service. We made it to the crater where we could see the smoke rising from the crater. Didn't go to the cross at the peak because one of the guys was dead and coudn't continue. Amazing view the whole way up and down. Difficult, but awesome." - Volcan Misti, PabloBruneau, Aug 19, 2018
"we got up to the BC with mules of a farmer who lives in the village along the road. he showed us the hot wells and asked us if he could accompany us to the summit. It was very crowded in our tent ;) very nice guy. We did two summits there." - Nevado Hualca Hualca, tonyup, Nov 15, 2011
"Expedición Volcanoe Chachani 6085 m, Arequipa - Peru Places above 5000m are not meant for mankind but for age man has tried to see where his limits are and boldly go where no man has gone before. Chachani was our limit ! First we planned to summit the 6200 high Amparo where they found the frozen princess Juanita but it would take too long to get to the foot of the mountain from Arequipa. Chachani was perfect and it would be a challenge for the beast to get to basecamp at 5000 m. But he reached it without blood or tears, or should I say oil or smoke. For us on the other hand, it wasn’t all so " - Nevado Chachani, cvandaele, Mar 7, 2010
"when finished there should have been a jeep waiting for us at the base of the mountain. NOBODY was there! next day we had to take our plane home, so we crossed the plain which was much bigger than we thought it was to catch up wit the small road we saw from up there, and started asking the few cars that drove by if they could take us whith them towards Arequipa. We were lucky!" - Nevado Chachani, tonyup, Apr 19, 2001
