Description

In this 4 days program, we will climb Nevado Sajama, the highest mountain in Bolivia, with 6548 m.

Sajama town is located in the southeast of Bolivia, 25 km near the border with Chile. This region is rich in thermal waters, and it’s where the Lauca River begins. It is also the natural habitat of Andean animals such as, llamas, vicuñas, and alpacas, ñandu or suri (Andean ostriches), wallata or wild geese, pink flamingoes, wild mallard ducks, viscachas, chinchillas, mountain cats, pumas, foxes, etc. The area has got its own cultural patrimony, which is the Curaguara de Carangas church.

The highest point of this impressive volcanic cone is the highest elevation in Bolivia, Sajama Volcano (6.548mts.), found within the area of the Sajama National Park, in the province of Curahuara de Carangas (Department of Oruro).

About the guide

I work together with several IFMGA/UIAGM colleagues. So if I'm not available to guide you, one of my colleagues equally certified will guide you.

I began to climb the mountain when I was 15 years old. I was born in Pinaya (3.800 m.a.s.l.), a region located not far away from the top of the base camp of the majestic snow-covered Illimani (6.462 m.a.s.l.). I dedicated most part of my life to climb different ice and Rock Mountains through the Cordillera Real, Cordillera Occidental, and Cordillera de Apolobamba.
