  • One of the roads more spectacular that we have seen in our life. A winding road downhill between ferns, high mountains and precipices without end. It is a down hard for those who do not handle bicycle with ease, since the road is all downhill and full of stones and potholes. But it is worth the effort.

  • Certainly one of the best attractions of La Paz. Don't let go. You get out of the van in the city and goes to La Cumbre to 4700 meters. From there you go down the road in asphalt. A lot of adrenaline. Then you get to the entrance of the mythical Yunga's Road, the deadliest road a few years ago. The part of descent is on gravel, which makes difference in features that your bike has. Today the road serves only almost for the downhill. Almost no other cars around. So few deaths in the last 20 years only 30 bikers have died there. You can never be too careful, but you give your pace. Don't worry. The arrival is at the beginning of the Amazon jungle, another climate and visual. Don't let go!
