Suburbs of Arequipa with Chachani


Flight Lima - Arequipa, view in NE direction to the volcanic complex of Chachani with its main summit at 6057 m asl. The informal neighbourhoods in the foreground of this picture represent pueblos jóvenes ("young villages"), the result of land invasions mainly by people migrating from the countryside to the growing and economically prospering city of Arequipa. Most of the area still appeared as bare land in satellite images from 2013.
