5 – Misti Volcano, Spanish Volcán Misti, also called Volcán De Arequipa, or El Misti, volcano of the Andes mountains of southern Peru. It is flanked by Chachani and Pichupichu volcanoes and rises to 19,098 feet (5,821 m) above sea level, towering over the city of Arequipa. Its perfect, snowcapped cone is thought to have had religious significance for the Incas and has inspired both legends and poetry. Now dormant, Misti last erupted during an earthquake in 1600.

Love these, HJ, but my favourite is the volcano. What a sight with the snowy summit so high up!
It’s a remarkable volcano! Thank you, Chris. 🙂
Another beautiful selection, H.J. That volcano towering over Arequipa looks very ominous…
That’s what one’s feel in front of a powerful force. Thanks, D. 🙂
