Cycle along the most dangerous road in the world - Yungas Road. It's even more exciting than climbing Everest.
How to cycle along the Death Road in La Paz
The main "motorcade of fear" in Bolivia, the steep mountain road from La Paz to the province of Yungas, is called the Road of Death, - a washed ground ledge, 3-4 meters wide. Try your nerves for strength - go down it on a mountain bike.

2. Travel assistance
Local daredevils (you'll find them in the citycenter) will help you to manage your adventure for some reward. You'll be provided with a bicycle, equipment and even an escort vehicle with provisions and spare bicycles. Upon completion of a route, return transffer to La Paz.

3. Let's cycling!
Departure - early in the morning. The first 23 kilometers of road is asphalted, then a real extreme will start. You're rushing along a narrow serpentine road at a speed of 70 km, and your hand convulsively clamping the brake every time a bus comes up opposite to you - roll on the moment to pull over the rock and let the bus pass you by. But on another moment, the adrenaline rises when the stream of water flowing down the rocks directly on your head, and you are ready to spin the pedals around even faster, if only this hell will end soon! But what a jubilation at the finish line: "I'm freaking a hero!"nnOn the Death Road, La Paz
