Hike off the beaten track in the stunning Sajama national park mountain area on the border with Chile.
See altiplano wildlife - high mountain lakes have a wide array of water birds. Vicuña run wild, condors soar.
Soak tired limbs in community-run hot springs that overlook the high mountains.
Bespoke tour - sleep in comfy bed or camping in remote mountain areas.
Add a 6,000m trekking peak, a 2 or 3 day trek, or day walks. There are hikes for all.
The locals are llama and alpaca herders and are happy to chat about their lives and sell their hand knitted gloves, socks and jumpers and weavings to visitors.
What a stunning part of the Andes, for wilderness, wild life (flamingos, vicunas, viscachas), and vast open spaces, at over 4,000 metres this is not to be missed.

What a stunning part of the Andes, for wilderness, wild life (flamingos, vicunas, viscachas), and vast open spaces, at over 4,000 metres this is not to be missed. The small village of Sajama is supported by vast flocks of alpaca. The volcano towers above the village.
