I would like to propose you a new and different way to visit the Bolivian Andes**.**

Come climb the Sajama and Parinacota volcanoes in this 7-day mountain adventure! As you may know the Sajama Volcano is one of the most amazing snowy peaks on earth. It is formed by 5 summits. The highest one is the southern peak with 6548 meters of altitude.

But the Andes mountain range has many other stunning summits to conquer. This time we will combine the Sajama's south peak with the Parinacota volcano (6342 meters). The Parinacota is one of the two volcanoes of the Payachatas. These mountains lies on the Bolivia-Chile border, inside the famous Sajama National Park.

While the first ascent (Sajama) involves an intermediate technical difficulty, the second one is an easier climb. However, this program is aim to climbers with some prior experience. That way we can make best use of the itinerary in a safe way.

At the end of this page you will find more details of the day by day program. And if you're in search of climbing only the Sajama Volcano, please check out this 5-day ascent up there I am also leading.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
