Sajama National Park

Why Visit Sajama?

Sajama National Park, an area of enigmatic beauty, shares a border with Lauca National Park in Chile. It showcases spectacular Andean landscapes, and also lays claim to snowy Sajama volcano, the highest volcano in Bolivia. Sajama is now on the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List, as a site of natural and cultural significance.

Reasons to visit Sajama include:

  • Explore this magnificent landscape on foot or 4x4
  • Sajama National Park is an area of exceptional beauty, seemingly deserted apart from llamas, alpacas and vicuñas
  • Ideal for keen photographers with snowcapped volcanos, hotsprings, mountains, wetlands and vast plains all on offer
  • Visit the Curahuara de Carangas Chapel, often referred to as the Sistine Chapel of the Antiplano
  • Take a hike to the base of Sajama volcano and surround yourself with spectacular, breathtaking scenery
  • Birding is good at Laguna Huayña Khota. It’s a good spot for flamingos
  • Relax in the idyllic hot springs, and soak away the aches and pains of your hike
  • Queñoa forest on the slopes of the Sajama mountain is made up of 3 meter high shrub-like plants that grow almost exclusively in this area. They have adapted to the steep elevations and harsh climate of the Andes
  • Wildlife enthusiasts might see armadillos, bears, pumas, the rare condor of the Andes together with other animals and birds that make their home at high altitudes. These are somewhat harder to spot than the llamas and vicuñas.
