As all best things, our trip is getting to an end, so we have to drive to Lima, in order to have the paperwork ready to safely leave our car as we will fly back home.

For our last weeks before going back to France, we have eventually decided to go back to the Peruvian highlands near the mountain ranges of the center of the country, among the highest of south America. We might as well enjoy our training to high altitudes to go and admire from close these tropical glaciers.

Arequipa, « the white », is the second city of Peru, standing at 2300m high, between desert and pacific coast, overlooked by 3 majestic volcanoes, one of these being active. Its name comes from the white spanish colons who initially settled the city, and then it kept it later with the mix of populations because of the many buildings made of the sillar, a volcanic white stone. The city is undoubtedly charming and pleasant, and less touristic than Cuzco.

For us to reach this canyon, the world’s deepest with 3354m, we have decided not to use the most common way, nor the easiest. It’ll be much more fun to go through the altiplano for a few days, where roads are bad and none have seen a tourist recently. One more chance to freeze at nights!

After a first attempt 2 weeks before, aborted because of bad weather conditions, we are ready to go for a 4 days trek around this 6384m summit : 50 km and 3 passes higher than 5000m !
