El Misti is one of active volcanos in Peru, and known because it is located close to an important city of Arequipa, at about 17 km. There has been in the past several eruptions and the volcano is covered with lava, ash, etc. from such eruptions. The edifice is composed of a stratotocone called Misti 1, two stratocones designated Misti 2 and Misti 3 and a summit cone Misti 4. In this work samples from Misti 3 have been collected for TL dating. In the past charcol has been used for radiocarbon measurements and found age varying from 25000 to 35000 years. The TL dating produces ages between 28700 and 32300 years.
