The porter will carry : Tents, matresses, cooking equipment.

For each four (4) customers we add an assistent guide.

first day:

at 9 am we will collect you from your hotel by private transport to travel to the ubinas village which is located 70 km (45 miles) from arequipa. on the route we can stop to appreciate the salinas lagoon (4300m.) in this lagoon we will be able to see flamingos and appreciate the incredible view the plateau;, surrounded with volcanoes, such as pichupichu, misti and ubinas.

approximately at 3 pm we will arrive at the ubinas village (2800 inhabitants) it is situated at 6 kilometers (3.6) miles from the volcano. in the evening we will stay in a small hotel in the village.

second day

after breakfast, we will take the car in the direction of the ubinas volcano until we arrive at 4800 meters (15600 ft) from here we will walk for 2 hours until we reach the crater. from the summit the descent towards the bigger crater is easy, but we do not do this inside of the small crater since the walls are vertical. at 1 pm we will return to ubinas village, here we will have lunch. there is the possibility of bathing in the thermal baths of huarina village.

we will arrive in the city of arequipa at approximately 7pm.


Private Service: Designed for those who only want to stay with the people you know for example you and your partner, only two people will be on the climbing tour. Of course this is a more expensive service.

This service is more personalized, the guide will adapt himself to your rhythm, the guide will teach you (if you would like) the small tricks of the mountain, for example, different skills of world basic ascents.

On this service, you will not climb the mountain with another client that has more or less experience than you. The guide will try to take you as far as possible up to the summit.

Shared Service: This the classic service offered by the most travel agencies in Arequipa sorry but Pablo tour don´t Organise this cane of service.

This is designed for people of different nationalities on the tour, (for every 5 participants there is a guide) and is an economic service. The negative aspect of this service is that, the participants have different levels of physical Shape and experience in mountain; some customers has good physical shape, some are very good and others don´t have any experience in mountain . There are some cases where there are the people with a lot of experience who take part on a shared service trip, and at the same time in the same group there are other people who have no experience, nor a good physical shape, in our experience the people with less experience hardly ever reach the summit or never arrive to the summit.

The most travel agencies in arequipa pool their customers with other travel agencies and like this they form a group and each couple have diferent physical shape , different skills in mountain, also they receive some time diferent information abouth the same mountain.

For these reasons we prefer organise just Private service because like this you will have more advantage to arrive to the summit.

We never pool our customers with other travel companies.

Our treks and climbing in mountains leave just on private service.

Example : if you are just 2 of you , you will be in the mountain : 2 customers + private guide and private porter + private transport and private driver.

If you are 3 or 4 customers is the same. and remember if you are more than 4 people we add one assitent guide.
