Nevado Mismi in Arequipa

by admin on October 5, 2009

This stunning mountain is Nevado Mismi, a peak in the Andes Mountains. Hikers and tourists often explore the mountain on guided tours that last several days. Peru is a fantastic destination for adventure travel, and Mismi is another great place to spend a few days while trekking through this fascinating country. Mismi is one of the highest peaks that form the Colca Canyon, which I have written about in past posts – the Grand Canyon in Colorado looks small in comparison to this impressive natural attraction. In fact, Peru is home to two of the deepest canyons in the world. This gorgeous landscape is found in the Arequipa region.
