Placed in the zone sudoriental of Peru, it includes zones of coast and sierra (mountain zone), has varied climates (intense heat in the summer and low temperatures in the winter). Arequipa presents a varied relief, begins in the coastal desert and rises in the Andes reaching great height in the tops of snow-capped mountains as the Ampato (6288 msnm) and the Chachani (6075 msnm) or of his volcanoes - as the Misti (5825 msnm). Arequipa counts in addition, with two of the deepest cannons of the land, the Cannon of the Cotahuasi and the Cannon of the Colca.
To come to the top of the Misti is not necessary to be in good physical conditions and to possess a good bill of health; since the raise is done in two days, with an average of 12 hours of trek up to the top, staying to the 4610 m.s.n.m the first day, whereas the descent takes an average from 3 to 4 hours. This one is an activity full of adventure that really is worth a sorrow being to realize it.
