Thoroughly make sure if you (and your kit) are up for this beforehand. Basecamp is at 5200, make sure you're comfy at that altitude! Make sure you've ascended more than 1000m of altitude in one go before.

I went to Chachani with Mountains & Adventures on Jerusalen no. 508 in Arequipa, guide Jose and I recommend the company and the guide. I did in 2 days. It's easy peak when you are acclimatized.

Alain and his team from Wayki adventures gave us all we needed to reach the top of the Chachani vulcano. Without their willingness to let us reach the top, it would not have been possible. Definitely recommend this agency.
