Towering 21,458’ over the remote and arid Atacama desert, Sajama is the highest peak in the Bolivian Andes. According to Aymara legend an ancient chieftain was slain by a warrior. His head was flung far to the east and became the solitary mass of Sajama. Due to its remoteness and sever cold its icy upper slopes are seldom climbed. In the valleys beneath live vicuñas, condors and rare trees and mosses.
