Sajama National Park 5 – 6 days
High Mountain Trek in the Bolivian Western Andes.
Extreme North of the Continent in Venezuela to the extreme South in the Patagonian Argentina splits into two Ranges only in Bolivia, forming what it is called The Altiplano in the middle?
Get to see it!! The Western Andes of Bolivia with huge perfect shaped volcanoes like Sajama, Parinacota & Pomerape during the whole Trek.
Best way to do Sajama is in a relaxed way, since the option we give you here is with public transport. First day is practically to get there as well as the last day for return. The good thing is that you spend 4 nights in the park.
However, this programme can be shortened to 3 days if we used private transportation, which also means more money to pay. Ask about it, especially when there’s a group of four or six people so private transport becomes cheaper.
1st day.- 07:00 Transfer to the Bus Stop. We will take a public bus to Patacamaya (2 ½ hrs) and to Sajama Village (2 ½ hrs). We will get to the Village around 4 or 5 p.m. We camp close to the Village.
2nd , 3rd & 4th day.- During these days you will be walking in the first park of Bolivia. Around Sajama you will see the highest forest in the world with plants “Keñua” that can grow above five thousand meters. Sajama is an extinct Volcano and the highest in the Bolivian Andes. Other high mountains in the area are Pomerape 6222 m, Parinacota 6132 m , Quimsa Chatas 6032 m. This Trek will take you to hot springs, a high mountain lagoon and geysers, peculiar wetlands that feed llamas, alpacas and Vicuñas, wild life is so rich in this area and you will enjoy it.
Your specialised guide will always be there to clear out your doubts.
This trek is also a good way to get acclimatised before climbing one of the peaks of the Western Andes. This trek is definitely different to others in the Andes.
5th day.- 12:00 Bus back to La Paz.
15:00 Arrive in La Paz and transfer to Hotel
This Trek can be extended in one or more days by hiking up to Sajama , Pomerape or Parinacota high camps. Ask about it so that we can shape the trek to your needs.
