Not specified


4 Days

May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct


We find the Parinacota volcano (6348m) at the border between Bolivia and Chile. It's just a few hours west from the city of La Paz. The fauna and flora in the area are abundant and extremely varied. 

In fact, La Paz will be our meeting point to begin this 4-day ascent. Firstly, we will go to Sajama, getting into the Sajama National Park. Then we reach the Parinacota high camp. Following this, we proceed to ascend to the summit. The adventure is intense and rewarding! You will see I'm right when you appreciate the views from the top.

On the third day, we will relax at the Sajama hot springs, returning to La Paz on the fourth day.

Tempted by this 4-day ascent to Paranicota volcano? Then please get in touch with me, I would love to guide you up there! Another Bolivian volcano that I like to climb is Nevado Sajama, check it out!

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.

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 a great guide and I had a excellent trip to Acotango with him. He had great knowledge of the mountain and the food was tasty and fresh the whole trip. He also replayed to all my questions before the trip quickly. Would love to go on another trip with him again!

Absolutely wonderful to have a private guide for the mountain. Very attentive and answered all my questions before meeting (packing, equipment, timing, etc) He obviously knew the mountain well and was prepared for situations that required extra safety measures (rappelling down ice wall). The food on the trip was plentiful, delicious and safe. The hut accommodation was much more comfortable than a tent! Thank you.

Jaime was a great guide. He was friendly, showed a love for the terrain, and demonstrated clear interest that I have the best possible trek; he asked both before and during the trip which foods I would prefer, provided hot water bottles each night for my sleeping bag, and checked in frequently about my level of acclimatization. I knew I was in great hands.

We spent a few days with Jaime who is an awesome guide and personn. The organisation was perfect, equipment also. Talking about the food, we had never been eating so well during a trekk (fresh fruits, vegetables...). We even had the chance to spend a night at his place to meet his family who was happy to make us discover the alpagas and their daily life (and we even got a hot shower !) Jaime speaks very good French and English. We would totally recommand going with him and can't wait for a new trip there !

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.
