La Paz: Mountain Bike Down the World's Most Dangerous Road

1. La Paz: Mountain Bike Down the World's Most Dangerous Road

The dramatic and scenic “World’s Most Dangerous Road”, locally known as “Death Road”, “Camino de la Muerte” is a must-do adventure activity in South America. Your highly-trained English-speaking guides and mechanics will give you all the assistance you need to get down safely, comfortably, and with amazing time. Your guides have been riding this road for over 20 years, and know how to get it done with utmost safety and security. Drive up from La Paz, Bolivia, and begin biking at wind-swept La Cumbre at 4700 meters altitude. At this height, you’ll get fantastic views of a number of snow-covered peaks. From here, descend rapidly down a twisting asphalt road among mountain peaks, grazing llamas, alpacas, and tiny villages. Stop for refreshments, photos, and rests along the way, all the better to give you time to take in the scenery: towering cliff faces, dramatic drops and even greener vegetation. This will give you time to prepare yourself for the next breath-taking section of the ride. Descend even further, and after a brief undulating section of the road, you’ll enter the jungle itself and the most challenging part of the ride. This infamous narrow dirt road is cut precariously into the side of the mountain and descends 2000 meters in altitude. Ride on through mist, low cloud, and dust. As the end gets near, it gets progressively hotter and dustier. By the time you arrive at the bottom in Yolosa, you’ll be hot, dirty, and exhilarated, having conquered Death Road with no fear. Just around the corner, you’ll visit La Senda Verde Animal Refuge to enjoy a buffet lunch and take in the magnificent scenery and the animals of the Yungas. While there, have the chance to see some of the region's native animals, including hundreds of monkeys, an Andean spectacled bear, capibara, birds, and so much more. Your visit helps the refuge maintain their incredible work rescuing animals from the black market. Many happy riders have said this was the best experience of their trip to Bolivia. Even if you don’t have a lot of experience, your guides, bike, and coaching will get you down safely and feeling amazing for having done it. There’s truly no downhill ride like this in the world.
