Climbing Sajama (6542m), Bolivia


  • Reach the summit of the highest peak in Bolivia.
  • Live an unforgettable experience in the Andes.
  • Contemplate incredible sights from the top.


Bolivia is an amazing country to climbers. Today I am proposing an unforgettable trip to Sajama. This volcano is the highest summit of Bolivia, very close to the limit with Chile.

Climbing up to this mountain presents some difficulties because of its altitude. But I am sure that with the correct acclimatization you will do it without any problems. We can start this high adventure at any time of the year but I always recommend doing it between May and September.

Below, you can take a look at an estimated program of the trip, so that you can organize your journey to Bolivia.

Now you have this information you don’t have any excuse. Get in touch with me and let’s do it together!

Also, you can follow me on this ascent that I lead to Huayna Potosí in Bolivia.


Day 1: La Paz - Sajama - Wincurata

We will meet in La Paz, Bolivia’s capital, and then will go together to Sajama to start trekking in Wincurata for the following 3 hours to our first camping night at 4800 m.

Day 2: Climbing day

The second day and during 5 heavy hours, we will keep climbing to the following campsite.

Day 3: Summit day

We did it! The day of summiting will be very exhausting because it takes 7 hours to ascend and other 7 to descend to the base.

Day 4: Rest day

It will be our resting day after walking back to Wincurata, where we will have a relaxing time in the thermals and then go back to the capital.



Meeting point

We will meet in La Paz.
