Climbing Sajama (4 days)

Sajama 6542m

The Sajama is 6542 meters higher than the summit in Bolivia. Since it is a volcano, its ascent from the technical point of view is not very difficult, but it is a long journey in height.


Day 1.- Departure from La Paz towards the town of Sajama (approximately 5 hours from La Paz). Then we continue to Wincurata where we will start our 3 hours walk to the base camp (4,800 m).

Day 2.- Hike from the base camp to the high camp, at 5,700 m. This walk lasts around 5 hours.

Day 3.- After a good breakfast we start the ascent, it lasts approximately 7 hours until reaching Cumbre del Sajama. The return is through the same route to Alto Camp and then continue to base camp.

Day 4.- Walk from the base camp to Wincurata, where we will have the opportunity to enjoy the magnificent thermal baths, before returning to La Paz.
