Itinerary 1

  • Day 1:
    La Paz Village of Sajama

    Departure from La Paz to the village of Sajama in the morning. During the trip we enter the Sajama National Park, where we can discover the chullpas (tombs) of the Chipaya culture, ancestors of Bolivian people in this region. We can also watch the transformation of the landscape, something indescribable. Then, we arrive at the village of Sajama.

  • Day 2:
    Village of Sajama High camp

    A relaxed day. Our transport drives us up to our camp at 5200 m.a.s.l. During the tour, we can see an extensive high plateau, with a spectacular change of colors while the sun dips below the horizon.

  • Day 3:
    High camp Acotango summit Village of Sajama

    We leave at dawn attempting to reach the summit. Once we reach it, we discover the surrounding landscapes with the twin volcanoes of this mountain. The vehicle will be awaiting our return to go back to the village of Sajama.

  • Day 4:
    Village of Sajama La Paz

    A relaxed day. First thing in the morning we load the vehicle and head for Aguas Calientes, where we have a delightful time in a natural hot spring enjoying the view of Mount Sajama (Bolivia?s highest mountain, 6547 m.a.s.l). Finally, we head for the highway to La Paz.



To participate in this tour a good physical condition is required, especially talking about high mountain climbing (altitudes above 5500 m.a.s.l.). This is an ideal route for those initiating in mountain climbing because it does not present further complications; with a good acclimatization chances to reach the summit are many.
