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!

About the 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.
