Arequipa is Peru's second-largest city and is known as the "white city" from the buildings constructed of sillar volcanic rock that glisten in the sun.
Set at an altitude of 2,350m it is an excellent acclimatization stop along the route to Puno and Cuzco. However, while you are here take the time to enjoy
this magical city set in a lush valley surrounded by three giant volcanoes; Chachani (6,075m), El Misti (5,822m) and Pichu Pichu (5,571m).
This sparkling city has everything from fine-dining and five-star hotels to adventure activities just out-the-back-door of your hostel. Taste delicious spicy arequipeno cuisine in a terrace restuarant overlooking the Cathedral and Plaza de Armas. Hike to the peak of neighboring El Misti volcano (5,822m) or watch Andean condors fly gloriously overhead in Colca Canyon. Go river-rafting in the Rio Chili, Rio Majes or Rio Cotahuasi... take your pick of a multitude of adventure activities and then recoup at your cozy guesthouse in Arequipa before moving on.
