Second Option

Day 1 - Transfer Arequipa - Colca - Cabanaconde

The ascent is made from the north face of the mountain, departing from the village of Cabanaconde ( Colca Canyon ).

Day 2

With the help of some donkeys we climb up for 7 hours we make camp on the shores of the
Mucurca lake, where we can enjoy this spectacular scenery.

Day 3

This day we camp at 5,200m at the edge of the snow cap. Up until this point it is possible to travel with pack animals, which carry some of the equipment.

Day 4

We leave early to make the ascent to the summit, which takes about 5 or 6 hours. We head back down and spend the third night at the foot of the mountain.

Day 5

After a late breakfast we return to the village of Cabanaconde and transfer to Arequipa. This takes the whole day, although of course the return trip can also be made in 2 days, depending on each person's condition.
