Bolivia High Andes Expedition

Climb to the summit of Bolivia’s Highest Peak

Expedition Details

Rising to 6542 metres above sea level, Nevado Sajama is a stunningly beautiful mountain in the remote Altiplano region near the Chilean border. Our inaugural ‘expedition’ grade trip will take us from the vibrant streets of La Paz via the eerie beauty of Lake Titicaca to the stunning mountain scenery of the high andes. This is a fantastic opportunity for those looking for their first taste of expedition mountaineering, in a range famed for its weather and welcoming inhabitants.

Bolivia is a very traditional country, relatively untouched by tourism compared to its neighbouring countries and blessed with jaw-dropping mountain scenery. Our pioneering itinerary will see us learning essential climbing skills whilst we acclimatize in the stunning Cordillera Real range, before journeying south across the remote and empty Altiplano to the plains on the Chilean border. Here we’ll make basecamp among the Stratovolcanoes and launch an attempt on the infrequently climbed Nevado Sajama – Bolivia’s highest peak.
