Misti is an extinct volcano, or a dormant volcano. We just looked at the canyon from a distance. It's a very beautiful volcano, and the scenery of the whole place is quite good.
Misti volcano is a famous dormant volcano in Arequipa. Its altitude is very high. The crater is covered with thick white snow all the year round, and the clouds are misty all day long, making it very mysterious. There are no tall buildings or peaks around the volcano, it looks very abrupt, with a small sense of loneliness overlooking the mountains.
The Misti volcano in Arequipa is an active volcano in the dormant period. It is also one of the most mysterious volcanoes in the world. It is on the top of the mountain all year round, with white snow and clouds. It is said that UFOs have been photographed before. Entering the crater is really super mysterious.
Misti volcano is an active volcano, part of the Andes Mountains, with an altitude of 5822 meters. The last volcanic eruption occurred in 1985. This volcano has a beautiful mountain shape and a volcanic cone covered with snow all year round. The magnificent scenery is comparable to Mount Fuji in Japan. If you want to climb this volcano, climbers need to find a guide in Arequipa, let him drive you to the foot of the mountain, and then hike to the top in two days. During this period, a spacious and ventilated camp was built on a slope covered with gravel at an altitude of 4500 meters. Then set off from the camp overnight and climbed to the top before noon, and then quickly slid down the ramp on a chute full of fine ash and debris. July to November is the best time to climb Misti. During this period, the mountain has the least snow and the climbers have the clearest vision. There is no permanent ice cap on Misti volcano, so climbing the mountain is only a hike on a slope covered with rocks and flowing ash. However, you still need to bring an icebreaker and some crampons when climbing during the snowy season. Near the top of Misti volcano, you will see a yellow sulphur pit bubbling with mud, volcanic fumaroles hissing and steaming steam.
Climb it if you can! but hire a guide, specially if you wish to snowboard from the top! Arequipa is splendid, crazy busy though.
What an incredible site to see. The whole city of Arequipa is overshadowed by this amazing volcano. Absolute must see
a must to see. misty is situated between 2 other large vulcanos. from the otherside of the city going up in the mountains you can see the 3 vulcanos clearly which also shows a nice city view.
Rising high above the city, El Misti totally dominated the scene. The city is so beautiful and this sleeping giant only adds to the beauty. There are so many good restaurants and places to shop here...
I arrived in Arequipa in good weather, the snow-covered misti volcano is only seen at one time a year and I was lucky to see it, impressive. wou wou
