Sajama National Park – Nature and Culture

3 days from £550pp plus international flights.

Explore Sajama National Park and experience culture, landscapes and scenic beauty.

  • Fabulous landscapes
  • Andean views of snow-capped volcanos
  • Bubbling hot springs and geysers
  • Home to Bolivia's Aymara people
  • Visit the colourful Inca burial towers
  • Bird watching at Lagunas Saquewa and Huaynacota

This itinerary will take you off the beaten track to discover Sajama National Park and all it encompasses. Starting in La Paz, this tour through Sajama will showcase some stunning scenery and will take in one of the most successful community projects in Bolivia. From Tomarapi Eco-lodge, you will be able to see archaeological and historic sites as well as discovering the flora and fauna of this region.

The colourful Inca chullpas (burial towers) are rather impressive too, and it's very interesting to learn their significance, but we'll leave that to the local guides to explain. Hike through the Polylepis forests and travel on to the vast plains where llamas and alpacas roam. A visit to Caripe village will provide an opportunity to meet the villagers and see how important the llama and alpaca wool is to them. There may also be time to visit a local school. If class is in session, the pupils love to receive visitors and are most welcoming.

As well as seeing local village cultures you will also have the opportunity to admire the scenery, the beautiful lakes and the wildlife they support. You are likely to get sightings of flamingo, crested ducks, woodpeckers and perhaps small falcons and eagles, all with a beautiful scenic backdrop in this remote Bolivian landscape close to the Chilean border.
