I took a trip to Arequipa and did a downhill between the volcanoes, not Misti because the road had collapsed, but nevertheless, it was an awesome experience. Being at that altitude between volcanoes is eerily quiet and the gusts of wind extremely crisp, so be sure to wrap up warm. There are a couple of companies that offer the downhill Misti routes, so shop around.

You do not mention the climb and what that was like, now that is what really worth mentioning. Or did you get a ride to the top?

He mentions that it was a downhill. Pretty standard for these tours. You avoid the grunt, but get the views and the rush of the descent. I did something similar in Huaraz a few years a go. It was a blast.

Ok, got it. I thought this was a topic about touring Peru (on a bike) and not coasting down some hill, silly me.
