Chachani in Aymara language means valiant, brave… It’s an active volcano near Arequipa city in the Peruvian south. It’s located at 1,963 m (6,440 ft) above the sea level and its height (measuring from base to top) is 6,057 m (19,872 ft) But those six kilometers are easy to climb, I would make it but I prefer rocky mountains. It’s not the tallest volcano in the region but it’s nice to see, specially at afternoon.
Closer to him
This is what you would see from the desert in the morning, if you’re coming from Lima city.
When you see the ichu (the yellow grass) is signal that you are quite close to Arequipa city.
And if you distant traveler come from the highlands this is your view of the Chachani, it has a dry beauty and a cold hug.
These photographs are bigger pictures.
And that’s all. If I have so many photographs is because the Chachani is always there so close to the city and the roads, it says you where you are and how much it takes to go to your destiny.
