Greetings from Peru from Alex Abramov and Lyudmila Korobeshko! And happy New Year!
Yesterday we climbed the summit of the Chachani volcano (6057m). We came to the Base Camp at 4900 in the midst of a snowstorm. But by 2 a.m. the snowfall stopped. At 3.40 we went out under the light of the southern constellations to storm and by 8 a.m. we climbed to the top of Chachani. The ascent is simple, it goes without ropes and without crampons. Similar to Ojos, but simpler. The peaks offer a view of the beautiful Chachani crater and the neighboring peaks – El Misti is very close and the active volcanoes Ampato and Sabankaya in the distance.
At noon we had already fed the foxes, looked at the herds of vikunias and flocks of wild mountain rabbits, and two hours later we rested in the spa of the hotel in Arequipa. So, a great route through Peru is ready. We’re planning a group in May. Happy New Year to everyone once again! Peace, happiness and new adventures to all!
