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.

Very nice unspoiled National Park on the Bolivian highlands (Altiplano). Stunning views, nice geothermal areas and lots of Alpaca's.

Stayed here for three nights with two of my mates. We were down @ Sajama NP for trekking and exploring the area in general. We based ourselves at Hostel Sajama. We had our own lodge with private bathroom and electrical power points (ex handy for recharging batteries etc) Dinner bed and breakfast package incredibly cheap under $10/night/person. Food is very... More

We went to visit Sajama and the plan was to spend the night there and leave the other day. We were surprised how calm and peaceful the place was and ended up staying for 5 days. If I didn't have to travel to La Paz to renew my visa we would've stayed much longer. We stayed at Hostal Sajama right... More

We found ourselves unexpectedly in Sajama after seeing a photo in a tourist office, and hopping on the first bus (many buses/minivans) to get out there. How can this place not be in the Lonely Planet South America book? When there are more llamas than gringos you know you have found somewhere special, and even the locals agree that Sajama... More

Recommended by Millenarian Tourism & Travel, we went to Sajama National Park to visit the highest mountain of Bolivia and experience the grandeur of the plateau. Actually Millenarian manages the lauded Tomarapi community-run lodge in Sajama and have a very good arrangement for us: transportation, tour guide, lodge and meal, itinerary. We didn't expect such a comfortable stay in this... More

My husband and I had the good fortune of seeing Sajama National Park, Bolivia, on June 11 and June 12, 2011. We were EXTREMELY impressed with Millenarian Tourism & Travel. Our guide was Nicolas Sotomayer and we must say he was one of the best guides we have ever had (having travelled to over 40 countries worldwide). He was very... More

Sajama is a good 3hr drive from Oruro. You are rewarded though with pristine desolation, relaxing hot springs, and scenery from another planet. There are herds of alpaca and vicunas that are exciting just to watch as you soak your feet in 120+ degree thermal water and soak in all the natural surroundings. Sajama also has the worlds highest forest... More
