Climbing Sajama

3 Days 2 Nigths

On October 4. of 1939, the Austrian mountaineers Wilfrid Kühm and Joseph Prem climbed for the first time the highest summit of Bolivia. Its name comes from the Aymara vocable "Chak-jiña" and means something like "west". It is strange that a volcano be the highest point in a country that it is composed mostly of mountain ranges. It is difficult not to see it from the distance, especially for its imposing glaciers that stand out in a landscape that is formed mainly by plains of low ridges. The ascent can be easier to organize from La Paz or from Putre, on the Chilean side. The ascent time is of at least 3 or 4 days, considering the category of the route and its altitude. It is necessary to point out that there must be an appropriate previous acclimatization to face the ascent in optimal physical conditions. It is unusual for this type of volcano not to find a crater on its summit, since it is covered by eternal ice. The Guallatire and Parinacota volcanoes, which are in the proximity, offer a good combination of routes, however, they are quite similar from the landscape point of view. Tours to the surroundings, like San Pedro de Atacama, in Chile, or hiking routes in the Cordillera Real, are more interesting alternatives.
