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.
