One of the highlights of our trip. In addition to all the natural attractions that was one of the few places we could camp without worrying about others. One of the most beautiful places we have camped and enjoyed what is best in camping, the feeling of connection with nature.

We did a three day Sajama Nationalpark tour including a climb of Parinacota Mountain with Inca Land Tours from La Paz. The tour was very good organised and our Guide Ramiro was amazing, and super friendly he took a lot of care of us during climbing Parinacota and took also some great Photos. The tour was like agreed beforehand in... More

Estupendo! I loved Uyuni, but Sanjama is something else. So pristine, real, wild and you experience the real Bolivia. My only regret, didn't spend enough time. The problem we had was with organising our trip there since the information online is not updated. Firstly, the entry to the park is now 100 Bols and not 30, they changed this end... More

Sajama NP is dominated by snow-capped volcanoes and camelids (llama, alpaca, sometimes vicunas). The scenery is quite picturesque, a photographer's dream. But rarely do tourists visit because it's a little complicated and time-consuming to get here, or simply because this park is the way less publicized compared to its cousin of Parque Eduardo Avaroa. The upside with the lack of... More

Gorgeous National Park, easy to find accommodation and the best is the freedom that you get in this area, you can go wherever you want and all hikes are amazing. Sure you have to walk everywhere like mentioned in a previous review but if you thought you would encounter a Disney land style park you came to the wrong place.... More

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
