Description

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!
