We leave Arequipa at around 7.30am-8.00am in a 4x4 vehicle to the drop off station at 5'000 m. From there we are going to start walking until the basic camp on 5'300 m. It normally takes between 1 and 2 hours to reach it. The walk during the first day is quite short and not too difficult. At the basic camp we are going to set up the tents and have dinner afterwards. Very early, at around 5.00pm we are going to bed.
Early in the morning at around 1.00am we start again and are going all the way up to the top. We reach the summit after six, seven hours. We have a beautiful view on Arequipa and the whole volcanoes chain. After spending some time on the top we will go down again to the basic camp to grab all our belongings and then down to the drop off station where the car is going to be waiting for us. We will be back in Arequipa at around 3.00pm-4.00 pm.
