I rented a small jeep which was perfect for visiting the park.Some fabulous sunsets on Mt Sajama. The hot springs were delightful and the geysers whilst not startling were great for a photo shoot of all the brilliant colours.Abandoned churches and homes and llamas everywhere was a photographers dream .

The Sajama national park was founded on 1945 specially to protect the queñua trees, which are used for the production of coal for the railway. The main village is called Sajama, same as the highest mountain of Bolivia (6542m). You can find simple accommodation there or also in the community of Tomarapi.

The Nacional Parque Sajama is 125 kilometers directly south of the southernmost shore of Lake Titicaca, as the condor flies. The western edge of the Parque is the border with Chile. To get to the Sajama National Park from La Paz I took a mini-bus on Nat'l Hwy 1 south to Patacamaya. In Patacamaya the highway divides, Nat'l Hwy 1... More

Inca Land Tours gave us the dates we needed and provided a guide, Miguel, and car, meals, and quaint accommodations in Sajama. While our Spanish was basic and Miguel didn't speak English, he was patient explaining things to us. Miguel made sure we saw the various attractions unique to the area and during the 3 hour drive each way. The... More

First the scenery is just amazing out there. Second the hikes are as well! The only drawback I found was that the trails are not well maintained and also they lack a certain degree of signing and also they could be done a bit better meaning a map is useful. Still it's just great being there you can do several... More

I was excited to come here, but it's really not worth it. From Oruro or La Paz, it takes 5 hours to get there each way if you go independently (recommended). You can go to the bus terminal and get a bus from Oruro to La Paz or vice versa and tell them you want to get off at Patacamaya.... More

You will test your endurance of extreme environment - sudden hail, freezing dawn and dusk, and scarce resources - simple and repeated food, power shortage; but compensated twice by the natural beauty- bathing in spa by the snow-capped mountain, knowledge of the heritage and the friendly faces of the indigenous people. An once-in-a-life trip that should not be missed !

We had such a great time in that village. We spend three days at Sajama hostal where we had our little home. Our host was really helpfull. We visited all the mains points : lagunas, geysers, thermes. We were only four tourists in the village at that time. The sajama national park should definitly be part of a travel in... More

Banjo Tours 'Andean Trail to Sajama National Park' tour was absolutely the highlight of my wife's and my three week visit to Bolivia. We loved La Paz, Sucre, Potosi, Tupiza, the four - day 'salt flats' area tour and Titicaca but most of all we were captivated by the rarely - visited - by - foreigners areas that Banjo Tours...

Bolivia is a country of immense natural beauty. And we wanted to see it, in particular the high-altitude areas of Altiplano: lake Titicaca, Cordillera Real and Sajama park at the border with Chile. Well ahead of our arrival we selected the tour operator (Climbing South America); going with the right agency and guides can make or break the trip in... More
