El Misti is the guardian volcano of Arequipa which is located over the city of Arequipa. It is not a technical mountain, but nevertheless it is a stratum volcano with a presence of ash and sand. This area was an important settlement area since before the Inca. In order to climb El Misti Volcano, technical preparations are required as it is not a technical mountain; it is a stratum volcano which consists of ashes and of volcanic lava. The only difficulty that can be a hurdle when climbing this volcano is the volcanic ash and sand and in some cases dunes which are formed in the sand. The duration of climbing can range from a day or two.
