The Sajama National Park, located on the border with Chile, is one of the most spectacular places to visit in this country. There, we can find not only impressive volcanoes but also hot springs, spectacular landscapes, legends and traditions still alive. From La Paz, we will go into the Altiplano crossing the lands of the Urus where we will discover the tombs of the Chipayas (chullpas). Later on, we will arrive to the Aymara town of Sajama, base camp for the ascent of Parinacota. The prize for our efforts: the hot springs, comforting to both body and soul. 


Departure from La Paz in the morning. We cross the Altiplano before arriving to the entrance of the Sajama National Park (approximately 4h). Along the way we will see the Chipaya tombs (chullpas).
