  • Reach the highest summit in Bolivia: Nevado Sajama (6542m)
  • Discover the unique flora and fauna of the Altiplano (Andean highlands)

Nevado Sajama (6542m) is the highest summit in Bolivia. It is a volcano located in the Sajama National Park, in the southwest of the country. And it's indeed a real giant!

In this area we can find all the wonders of the Altiplano. The wildlife is abundant and varied. In addition, there are unique fauna species. For example, on the volcano there are queñua forests. And they are in fact the highest forests in the world.

Besides the hard work of the ascent, we will get to enjoy the hot springs. And the panorama from the summit of Nevado Sajama is simply stunning!

On Day 1 we will drive from La Paz to Sajama Base Camp, at 4800m. On Day 2 we will move from Sajama Base camp to Sajama high camp, at 5700m. On Day 3 we will go to Sajama summit, at 6542m. On our last day we will go back to Sajama village, at 4400m, and from there drive back to La Paz. We also have to option to enjoy and relax on Sajama hot springs before heading back to La Paz! Keep in mind this is a tentative itinerary, that might be changed depending on weather and mountain conditions. And it's important to have some previous acclimatization before starting the trip.

Mountain Guide

IFMGA/UIAGM mountain guide from Bolivia.

I organize mountaineering and trekking trips in different regions of Bolivia, and community tourism as well. I spend my free time exploring new destinations and discovering new mountains and cultures in remote regions.

I have more than 20 years of experience working in Cordillera Real, and I live in Tuni, Condoriri. I worked as mule driver, porter, cook, trekking guide assistant, trekking guide, and finally became IFMGA/UIAGM mountain guide in 2008.

I made several ascents in Bolivia and neighboring countries like Argentina, Chile and Peru. Some of them: Ojos de Salado, Wallatiri, Urus, Azangate, Huayna potosí, Illimani, Chir oco, Chachacomani, Sajama, Illamapu, Acohoma, Chapi orco, Acotango, Parinacota… These experiences prepared me to organize and guide expeditions.

I like to provide a top level service to people from all around the world, help them get in contact with the local culture, and of course help them reach their objectives in the mountains.

What people are saying about this trip



Our guide in Bolivia was Jaime. I climbed with my daughter age 14, so safety was very important to me. He was very professional and gave us extra tips on an acclimatization and using crampons. Whenever we forgot about something he was ready to help. Thank you Jaime, the memories from the climb will last a lifetime. Anna.



Jaime is an excellent guide, coordinator and cook ! He knows how to make a relaxing atmosphere and ensure the ascent will go smoothly.



Jamie was an excellent guide and went out of his way to make sure everything was organized and went smoothly. He was flexible and worked hard which was particularly needed when my luggage did not arrive in time for the expedition. Thanks to him everything went smoothly. He was experienced on the mountain and went above and beyond both in safety and logistics.



The trip was fantastic! Even better than I hoped for!
