The Bolivian capital city of La Paz is the highest capital in the world, and it offers countless museums and historic attractions that are worth exploring. However, those with adrenaline coursing through their veins might also known that La Paz is surrounded by mountains, and that it is a world-class place for extreme and adventure sports. One of the most incredible and unforgettable ways to get the rush of a lifetime is cycling through the Death Road from La Paz with this amazing bike tour.
From La Paz, meet your expert guides and set off for La Cumbre, which translates to The Summit. Before the epic bike ride begins, take some photos of the lush greenery, the verdant mountains and the low clouds. After all, the downhill descent itself will be too fast, and too exciting, to allow for frequent photographs. Then, it is time to get ready for the ride down Camino de la Muerte, or Death Road. For nearly 65 km (40 miles), you’ll follow your guide downhill on a bicycle, descending nearly 3,6000 meters (12,000 feet) along what is widely known as the most dangerous downhill bike ride in the world.
Keep in mind that you’ll have several opportunities to stop, drink water, refuel and admire the views on your journey. You’ll be filled with adrenaline as you admire steep drop-offs during portions of the ride, not to mention the roaring sounds of waterfalls that you’ll pass.
In less time than you might expect, you’ll arrive by bicycle to the village of Yolosa and the beautiful La Senda Verde Ecotourism Resort. Take some time here to unwind with a warm shower or a few laps in the refreshing swimming pool. Your scenery here includes lush jungle scenery and rescued wildlife. After your effort on the bike, it’s the perfect time to refuel, and a delicious buffet awaits. Your tour ends with options, allowing you to spend the night at La Senda Verde Ecotourism Resort or head back to La Paz.
