Join Bernardo, local IFMGA certified Mountain Guide, on an unforgettable 4-day climbing expedition to the summit of the famed Sajama Volcano, in the Bolivian Andes.
Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov
The Sajama Volcano, at 6548 meters of altitude, is found in the Sajama National Park, in Oruro, province of Curahuara de Carangas. With an abundant wildlife and the most diverse native flora and fauna, this region has been protected since 1945.
Some of the main especies you'll find here are llamas, vicuñas, alpacas, ñandúes (Andean ostrich), wild geese, pink flamingos, mountain cats, pumas and foxes.
As for the ascent itinerary, you can choose between two routes to reach its summit. Both alternatives will require prior mountain experience as well as a good fitness condition.
The first option is the north route. Although it is the shortest one, it has some steep sections with 45-50 degrees of inclination. On the other hand, we have the west route option. It has a longer and harder part on the way to the high camp, also with slopes of 45-50 degrees. But after that 400-meter technical section the route turns into an easier one.
The perfect season to climb the Sajama Volcano is during the months of June, July and August. Although we may have a lot of wind and cold, you will enjoy the most spectacular view of the Andes.
So come and join me on this unique 5-day mountaineering trip to the top of the Sajama Volcano. A summit only reached by few lucky people. Contact me!
Departure from La Paz by vehicle across the International Highway. Arrival and camping on the outskirts of the Sajama Village at 4200 meters above sea level. The ascent to the base camp (4700 m) involves a 3-hour trek with the help of porters. Overnight camping.

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
