SAJAMA - LAUCA NATIONAL PARKS OHE 10

This circuit takes to the Sajama National Park, one of the natural jewels of Bolivia and one of the most spectacular places to visit in this country. Here, we will have the possibility of seeing typical specimens of the local fauna in their natural habitat. This a unique place surrounded by majestic volcanoes, hot springs, geysers and lost communities where life runs at the slow pace of a llama.
