Description

Come with me for a 5-Day climb to the summit of Bolivia's Highest Peak, Nevado Sajama (6,542m).

There are a number of incredible, beautiful sights in Bolivia. From the Salar de Uyini Salt Flats, to the  Laguna Colorada, but there is something truly special about the Nevado Sajama located near the Chilean border. It is an extinct Volcano, and an absolute marvel of nature. Its summit is topped by a Permanent Sheet of Snow, while its Treeline goes as high as 5,200 meters. Thus making Nevado Sajama one of the most unique peaks in not only Bolivia, but in the world as well.

The expedition will begin in the city of La Paz. From there we will make our way to Nevado Sajama's Base Camp and then the High Altitude Camp before reaching the Summit on the fourth day. The climb itself, despite the intimidating nature of the Volcano, is not as difficult as one might think. The gradient is manageable. And not a lot of equipment is necessary. So you do not have to be an expert to scale this mighty Volcano. However, weather conditions do play a part in the climb, and the snow slopes near the summit can pose some slight difficulties, but overall, the ascent will be fun, exciting, safe and riveting.

There are so many incredible and magical things to see, do, and explore throughout the Andes. And one of the biggest challenges is figuring out what to pick, or where to start. But I can assure you that with the Nevado Sajama in Bolivia, you can't go wrong.

So come, let me guide you for 5-Days to the peak of this amazing, extinct, yet still powerful looking Volcano, where you can sit or stand in awe at the breathtaking landscape far beyond.

I'll be awaiting your message.

And if you want to join me on another climbing expedition in Bolivia. This time ascending the peak of Condoriri. You can also join me here.

About the guide

IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Bolivia

I worked for several adventure tourism companies in Bolivia, guiding mountaineering, rock climbing, ski touring and ice climbing.

I love all the mountain activities, and travelled all along the Andes range, climbing peaks like Illampu, Chachacomani, Telata, Tiquimani, Sajama, Parinacota, Pisco in Peru and Aconcagua in Argentina.

I also did ascents in the Alps and in Australia.

I was trained in Chamonix by the French mountaineering school (ENSA).

I also worked as instructor in Bolivia’s guiding school, training new guides.

Get in touch with me if you are interested in discovering any of the unique mountain spots in Bolivia!
