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

I don't understand why tourist don't go to this place ! It's absolutely worth it, we booked the trip with a good agency, which is necessary to avoid the hassle of the transport and time loss, they gave us a guide in the process, it was one of the best visits in BL. the valley is so beautiful, the volcanoes...

Fantastic landscape! Very dry but absolutely unique whith all the volcanos and lamas. The hot springs are about an hour away from the village and very(!) nice. The road which continues to Chile is really beautiful as well.

Sajama National Park is amazing. It's totally off the tourist route, very undeveloped, offers spectacular scenery and lots of outdoor adventures. As I was travelling on my own I decided to do a tour offered to Sajama by Banjo Tours, and this made the experience even more wonderful. Ben, who owns and runs the company, has put together a great... More

It seems that we visited at the coldest, windiest season just over a year ago and found it a bit of a struggle! The surrounding area is just beautiful and it's amazing to see the alpaca strolling past so casually. We walked to the thermal springs which had that distinct eggy smell but it was amazing to have such a... More

Good national park to stay a night (or two) if you like mountains, hiking, beautiful scenery, alpaca's and/or geysers.
