Welcome

We are a family who runs a lodge at home, in the beautiful valley of Sorata, located in the royal range of the Bolivian Andes.

The valley of Sorata is a lovely colonial looking town with its steep stairways and maze of narrow cobbled streets. It may well have the finest setting of any town in Bolivia. Perched on a hillside with an elevation of 2625 m. Sorata lays in a valley beneath the towering snowkape peaks of 6362 m. Illampu and Ancohuma 6427 m. It's a popular gateway for urban bolivians and also attracts growing number of hikers and mountaineers.

Tourists aren't the only ones enchanted with Sorata. Bolivian writer emeterio Villamil de Rada was so inspired by the beautiful greenery and clear rivers that he used Sorata as the setting for the garden eden in la lengua de adan (adam's tongue), aymara he described this as the language of adam, and cerro Illampu was the true mt. olimpus.

In colonial times, Sorata provided a link to the gold mines and rubber plantations of the alto beni and as a gateway to the amazon basin.

In 1997 we opened Altai restaurant in the main plaza of Sorata at the same time Altai Oasis coffee shop & camping, just a short walk outside of Sorata. After the apogee with the restaurant in the main plaza of Sorata, we decided to move to the outside of town, from there we began to establish Altai Oasis Eco-Lodge, the hostel has now developed into a comfortable and welcoming place where you can find the best service. Our truely amazing cuisine is inspired in home cooking, from east european dishes to our trademark giant t-bone steaks, the charm of a fine dinning restaurant with views of towering massive Illampu.

Our rooms, with private or shared bathrooms and fully equipped cabins, accompanied by the murmur of challazuyo river running by altai oasis, are the best option. We also offer camping with full facilities, hot shower, kitchen, eco-bathrooms, grill room, fire places, hammocks and beautiful gardens. Mentioned in the bolivian Times (Jun 2000), Lonely Planet (2001), offering the best value in bolivia and also mentioned in other International Guidebooks such as Footprint, South American Guide, reise kompas, and other guide books.
