Pomerape (6280 m.a.s.l.) one of the Payachatas

MOUNTAINEERING BOLIVIA

Pomerape (6280 m.a.s.l.) more complex than Parinacota. is the lower of the Payachatas (twins in Aymara native language). The two volcanoes are located in Sajama National Park, an extraordinary place in the Andes of Bolivia.

There are different options to reach the summit from the Bolivian side.

You will be able to experience a diversified flora and fauna: The queñuas Woods (trees that grow in the highest altitude in the world), elegant vicuñas, lamas, alpacas, suris, and with some luck andean wild cats, pumas and condor. Besides all this, there is a geyser chain (boling slopes), place where you’ll can watch boiling water coming out of the ground and termal waters in open air, both product of the volcanic activity underground.
