Though many people refer to WMDR Yungas Road as "Death Road," the unforgettable views prove a perennial attraction that you may find worth the risk. Considered the most dangerous road in the world, the mountainous highway between La Paz and Coroico claims the lives of up to 300 tourists every year, as buses and mountain bikes regularly fall off its unguarded edges. You can travel the road in a bus, or take matters into your own hands with a mountain bike trip led by experienced guides. However you choose to brave the infamous road, make sure you go with a reputable tour company. Plan to visit WMDR Yungas Road during your La Paz vacation using our convenient La Paz day trip tool .

  • Nate and Marco were great! Would recommend to any of my freinds to do death road with this company! Thanks heaps for an amazing day!!  more »
  • Altitude. Price/performance is OK bike (the good version) is absolutely sufficient for the tour. Protective equipment is i.O. sections are explained at each stop. Guide could's good English. The snacks you should have no great expectations. Sandwich (small bread ball with a piece of chicken is expandable), also bars and banana. The food at the end of the tour is of the Buffet...je later it is, the less the Auswahl...wir had at the end of a long stop, before we come to dinner sind...das which was unfortunately low. the tour is undemanding and not to recommend to the tour: for real bikers. It is only to make hazard, if you just want to say I'm the D.R.. and had nice views.
