In the morning we'll pick you up and head by car to our starting point, La Cumbre, at a dizzying 4700 meters above sea level. From here we'll indulge in an adrenaline-filled downhill adventure along a scenic route which goes from snowy peaks through sharp curves with steep falls, waterfalls, and lush vegetation.
The Yungas Road to Coroico was built in the 1930s by Paraguayan prisoners during the Chaco War to connect La Paz to the Bolivian Amazon. Christened the most dangerous road in the world by the Interamerican Development Bank in 1995, it fell into relative disuse for auto transit but became popular with downhill mountain bikers as the infamous Death Road.
Over the next 5 hours we'll enjoy the rush of our 3,500 descent along this infamous route. It will take an hour to reach our first stop, Unduavi. Overall the ride will take approximately 5 hours, with sever stops along the way for taking photos of the stunning landscapes, resting, hydrating, and snacking.
The highlight of the trip is the Curve of Death, where we ride through several waterfalls and along a sharp curve with vertical drop.
After our unforgettable 5 hour ride speeds past, we'll arrive at the small village of Yolosa, a subtropical clime at 1800 meters above sea level. From here we'll ascend by car to the nearby picturesque town of Coroico for a delicious buffet lunch and a relaxing dip in the swimming pool. You can also use this time to walk around and explore on your own. At 4:00pm we embark on the return trip to La Paz, arriving at approximately 8:00pm.
