This is the Sajama volcano, the highest and most imposing mountain peak in Bolivia rising to 6542 m.a.s.l., and without a doubt the park´s main attraction. Its natural and cultural treasures make this area one of Bolivia´s most important conservation scenarios, since it has a large expanse of queñua forest, made up of trees that grow to the highest altitude in the world (up to 5200 meters), and which lodge several endangered species of birds. The people in the Park live in two small towns called Sajama and Caripe, located at the foot of the mountain.

Whit a surface that comes close to 10.000 Km2 and located in the southwestern part of Bolivia, the Uyuni Salt Flats, usually called “Salar”, is the largest in the world. One of the most visited spots in the Salar is the famous Incahuasi Island, or Fish Island, because it resembles a fish at a distance. Another main attraction is Laguna Colorada, or Red lagoon, located in the Eduardo Avaroa National Andean Fauna Reserve, near the Chilean border. This is possibly the place where the largest concentration of flamingoes in South Americas nested.

The fauna present in the area is representative of the Chaqueña plains region, with 350 registered species, 89 species of snakes, 301 species of birds, 65 species of small mammals and 59 species of large mammals. There are groups of mostly Izoceños and Ayoreode origin, including uncontacted groups of Ayoreode nomads. The park makes up the only area set aside to protect the extensive remaining areas of the South American Chaco. The region undoubtedly constitutes an important natural reservoir of genetic diversity.
