Description of Sajama National Park

Sajama National Park was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative list in 2003. This is one of the highest national parks in the country and all of the World. Its highest peak of Nevada Sajama reaches a height of 6,542 meters (21, 463 ft). Needless to say altitude sickness and low temperatures are two common dangers that might haunt tourists who will venture in this land. Precautions should be taken. Additionally Sajama National Park is inhabited by the Aymara native tribes. These people managed to preserve harmony with the surrounding environment and still inhabit their historic land.
