Nevado Chachani is the highest stratovolcano near of Arequipa city, located 23 km north of the city, south of Peru (6075m). Chachani means “skirt” in Quechua and a female character is normally attributed to the mountain in local legends. Chachani does not have a permanent ice cap or glaciers Chachani presents a significant hazard potential, particularly because of its height and proximity to Arequipa. Suburbs of Arequipa west of the Rio Chili are particularly vulnerable to pyroclastic or mud flows. These are located less than 23 unobstructed kilometers horizontally and 3,000 m vertically from the summit of Chachani. The ascent to the summit is therefore non-technical and can be attempted by inexperienced climbers; climb to Chachani is popular with 1 or 2 day guided trip to the summit, though the altitude is considered challenging for those who are not fully acclimatized.
