Nevado Sajama ascent (6542m), Bolivia
Jamie was an excellent guide and went out of his way to make sure everything was organized and went smoothly. He was flexible and worked hard which was particularly needed when my luggage did not arrive in time for the expedition. Thanks to him everything went smoothly. He was experienced on the mountain and went above and beyond both in safety and logistics.

How to get there
Several bus companies connect Oruro with the main cities of Bolivia. From La Paz (Bolivia's capital with connections to all the airports in the world), you have a travel time of approximately 4 hours. There are also buses from Chile and if you prefer the train, you can travel to Oruro from Uyuni or Villazón stations
Every year in Oruro, one of the most important carnivals in the world takes place. In 2001, Unesco declared the Oruro Carnival as “Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity”; recognizing the religious and cultural value that it represents. If you are planning your mountain climbing tour in February, do not miss the experience!
