4.8
#1 of 8 in Things to do in Oruro
Sajama National Park highlights the outback of Bolivia. Make the village your base camp, and go on a variety of adventures to discover indigenous plants, animals, natural formations, and ancient burial structures. The park was established to protect the Quenue trees, which are used to produce coal. Climb up the Nevado Sajama and reach the highest point of Bolivia, treat achy muscles to some relaxing warm water and the park’s hot springs, and hike around the park to see old ruined and abandoned churches and homes.

  • Located 4-5 hours from the city of Oruro, border with Chile, it is worthwhile to devote some days to discover the many attractions offered by the area of the Sajama National Park: the tombs, the colonial church of Curahuara de Carangas, landscape spectacular and all the activities to develop from the small town of Sajama, where there are more llamas and alpacas that inhabitants: geysers, hot springs, viewpoints, the lagoon with flamingos huayñacota gas pipeline and, for the more adventurous, the ascension to the giants of more than 6000 m Sajama, Parinacota or Acotango.

Where to stay in Oruro

The main area to look for accommodations in Oruro lies to the west of the central train station. Simple, no-fuss hotels sit on the more residential streets close to the station, providing conveniently located lodgings for new arrivals or those wanting to get out and explore the region. Farther to the west, on some of Oruro's most upmarket boulevards, you'll find boutique hotels with themed rooms and plentiful extras, nicely positioned within the scenic town center and offering good views.
