Follow IFMGA certified mountain guide Eduardo on this 6-day mountaineering adventure and reach the summit of Parinacota and Sajama mountains in Bolivia.



6 Days

May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct




  • Explore Parinacota and Sajama, two beautiful mountains in the Bolivian Andes.
  • Reach the summit of the highest peak in the country.
  • Discover the amazing natural environment that Bolivia offers.
  • Get to relax in a thermal bath at the end of the trip.


On this opportunity, I invite you to discover two 6,000-meter peaks in the Bolivian Andes: Parinacota and Sajama.

The stratovolcano Nevado Sajama is the tallest mountain in the country. At 6,542 meters above sea level, it belongs to the Cordillera Central in the Andes and belongs to the Sajama National Park, a protected area in the Oruro department. As for Parinacota, it has an altitude of 6,348 meters and lies on the border between Bolivia and Chile.

While hiking and exploring this beautiful region, we’ll be able to see the astonishing views from Bolivia’s mountains and to contemplate part of the local fauna. Some of the area’s typical animals are vicuñas and pumas, among others. Take a look below and you’ll find a detailed description of the program’s itinerary.

Finally, please take into account that this is an advanced program. To take part in it, participants must have prior mountaineering experience and a very good fitness level.

So, would you like to get to the top of these stunning peaks? Then all you have to do is send the request and book your place. I will be happy to guide you on this fantastic adventure!

Another 6,000-meter option in Bolivia could be Huayna Potosí. I offer a 2-day program to this peak. Check it out!

About the guide

IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Bolivia.

I made my first ascent at an early age. I have been guiding professionally for over 20 years, passed safety and rescue courses in the sister Republic of Peru with Swiss trainers, and my training culminated with the French school of the ENSA (National School of Sky & Mountaineering) International certification UIAGM opt / IFMGA.

I conquered the Summit of Bolivar, Humboldt and others in Venezuela, the peaks of Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador, Alpamayo and Huascaran in Peru, and also reached the summit of Aconcagua (6954 m) twice the same day from Base Camp ( Plaza de Mulas) in Argentina.

My knowledge of the Cordillera Real in Bolivia is very extensive, so much so that I helped the Military Geographical Institute produce their map of the Cordillera Real (the only official map of the area). I am an active member of the Bolivian Andean Club.
I was also hired by the President of Bolivia (then) - Jorge Quiroga - to climb Huayna Potosi and many delegations of embassies.

Nowadays I work together with a group of local guides, also AGMTB and IFMGA. So if I can't guide myself the trip you request, a colleague of mine will guide to an unforgettable time in the Bolivian mountains!

August, 2019

I think the explore share system is a great idea but a bit clunky in terms of the booking process. I remember I never booked exactly what was suggested or emailed but there were a few moments where it told me this has been booked and I thought "no it hasn't !". I think the most difficult was when we were trying to adjust the trip details but either I couldn't or perhaps only the guide could and I didn't want to get locked in to something I had not agreed to. Trip went really well once I acclimatised but I over estimated how much my preparation would help with acclimatisation. I should have allowed more time with that.
