DAY 636 - AREQUIPA LOOP / VOLCÁN MISTI
There’s a great dirt road going from the altiplano down to Arequipa in between the two volcanoes Chachani and Misti. With Pascal I did an overnight ride via the freeway (34A) up and the dirt road down. The best part is before the volcanoes. We camped in a ghost town called Pampa de Arrieros where formerly the train would come by. Currently there’s only one train a week and it doesn’t make a stop here. There are only 8 inhabitants. Once we past Misti it was cold and foggy until we popped through the clouds and arrived back in Arequipa.
