The guide will instruct riders with safety recommendations and information that all must adhere to during the tour. During the initial part of the ride, the road is asphalt with intense vehicular traffic. The total length of the tour is 21 km until your arrival at the locality of Unduavi. Unduavi check point: All cyclists must pay for entry and use of the death road; the cost is 25 Bolivianos per person. The revenue from the toll goes to the municipality of Coroico in order to maintain and finance structural infrastructure of the Death Road. Note: The toll paid at the entry of the Death Road is not included in our tourist package. We leave by transport to make the climb of 8 km to the locality of Chuspipata. We begin the second part of the journey. We travel to an elevation of 2,700 meters above sea level to the locality of Chuspipata, atop the subtropical valley. Starting this second part of the tour, the guide will give new safety instructions before departing to the death road which lasts for 40 km. During this part of the ride, cyclists will be riding downhill and should ride in the middle of the road. While encountering curves in the road, cyclists should ride closer to the left side of the road; close to the cliff. This is due to the fact that occasionally, riders will encounter traffic traveling in their direction that tend to hug the mountainside. The death road is a bike route with very high cliffs and spectacular water falls. You will be witness to spectacular scenery under the guides’ careful supervision who will accompany us during the descent.
Most exciting part of the trip!
This second part is the most exciting part of the trip; the road is narrow with many curves and at times, appears as if you are hanging off the mountainside. You will be witness to extraordinary rock formations, waterfalls, and also encounter fog and low laying clouds. All you need is a positive attitude and the careful instruction from our expert guides in order to enjoy some the most amazing scenery South America has to offer. Taking pictures during the trip will depend on the weather since weather conditions tend to change suddenly and abruptly. Closer to the end of the road, the climate will be warmer and quite dusty. We will arrive at the locality of Yolosa, located 1,100 meters above sea level where our tour will finish. Surely you will feel tired after the ride, and be dusty and dirty but also very happy to have had an unforgettable experience. We will take a 15 minute break while the guides gather the equipment. The tour will end approximately between 1:00 and 2:00 pm. Later we will enjoy a buffet lunch along with great scenery and a tropical climate. After lunch you will continue enjoying the pool. Our stay at the restaurant will be for approximately one hour. Finally, our trip back to La Paz will take about 3 hours. Normally, the arrival time in La Paz is between 5:30-7:00 at night.
Feel the adrenaline in the most dangerous road in the world.
