Visit Sajama National Park, Bolivia
Sajama National Park, Bolivia
Legend has it that Bolivia’s highest peak, the volcano of Sajama in Sajama National Park, is the head that was cut off the (now flat-topped) mountain of Mururata by the god Wiracocha as punishment for being too arrogant.
This and other legends will be recounted by your guide on the long but incredible road trip to Sajama.
This beautiful area, deserted except for vicuñas, is a wonderful place to explore by foot or 4WD, either en route to or from Lauca National Park in Chile, or over a rugged couple of days from La Paz.
