Hiking among the geothermal wonders of Bolivia is an experience like no other. In the shadow of snowcapped volcanoes lies the Sajama national park, the country's oldest national park. Visit this record-breaking place, home of Bolivia's highest peak at 21463 feet (6542 m), the giant extinct stratovolcano that gave the park its name. This 2-day tour departing from La Paz will take you to the western border of Bolivia with Chile, where Aymara communities have long mastered the art of living in the semi-arid environment of the high plains of South America. This is a rare opportunity to walk among the park's unique vegetation and incredible wildlife under colorful skies. Reward yourself with a relaxing bath in the hot mineral pools and marvel at erupting geysers while lamas, bears, pumas, condors and pink flamingos go about their daily Andean life in this pristine environment.

Itinerary

Day 1 CALAMARCA AND CURAHUARA DE CARANGAS CHURCHES, SAJAMA NATIAONAL PARK, TOMARAPI

Morning

Early morning departure to Sajama National Park. Stop along the way to visit the unique church of Calamarca that hosts a precious collection of paintings of angels and archangels owed to 'The Master of Calamarca', an anonymous painter of the late 18th century.

At the Aymara community of Curahuara of Carangas, find out about one of the most ancient catholic churches of the continent. Built in the late 16th century, its elaborate paintings show how the Spanish priests integrated local beliefs creating a religious art specific to the region. 

Afternoon

Arrival at the Sajama National Park, the first nature reserve in Bolivia, established in 1939 to protect the keñua (polylepis tarapacana), a special Andean tree that only grows on the high plateau.
