Misti at 5822m (19,101ft) is one of the easiest, most visible, most popular, most accessible high summits in the world. It is recommended for all self-sufficient hikers. If you tolerate cold & altitude symptoms, the ascent is little trouble in good weather.
Misti is one of the best trekking peaks in the world — no mountaineering skills nor gear needed if the weather is good
3 days, 25km circuit plus the climb is recommended. Most do it in 2 days, 1 night, however.
Easy access from Arequipa, our favourite city in Peru.

Unfortunately, the freezing temperatures, high winds and an incoming storm forced us to turn back without reaching the summit.
