The Payachatas (twins) are placed face to face. One of them is the Parinacota and the other one is the Pomerape. They are located in the National Park Sajama near the Chilean border. The slope is relatively slight.
The Parinacota is the typical volcano in almost perfect cone shape. Its ascension from a technical point of view is easy; however it constitutes a long journey in the height.
Day 1.- Departure from La Paz by private vehicle on a good highway to arrive in 5 and half hours to the base of the Parinacota and of the Pomerape at 4800m in the National Park Sajama.
Day 2.- Our ascent begins at 3am to arrive at the summit approximately 10.00am. We then begin our return to the high camp of here we continue to the town of Sajama where we will spend the night.
Day 3.- Before going back to La Paz we take some baths in the thermal waters.
