Biking the World’s most dangerous road
The Yungas area is characterized by a pleasant climate that ranges from 20°C to 25°C during the day for almost the entire year, mountains covered with varied vegetation, just fit for a pleasant break. The beautiful village of Coroico (1700 m), is located in this area, 97 Km from La Paz, and three and half hours by bus to get there. To reach this town there are two options: by bus or going on a bicycle.
We start the tour at 07:30 and head to the Cumbre (4750 m), located 1 hour away from the city of La Paz by bus. At the Cumbre the guide will give instructions and all the necessary equipment to start this activity.
At 09:00 we begin the descent on an asphalt road until we get to a police control point after 30 minutes. Continuing with the descent we pass through a small tunnel and arrive in Unduavi around 10:00 where the asphalt road ends. From this point the road varies ascending and descending. Around 11:00 we stop to rest and have a snack and at the same time we receive more instructions from the guide because from this point the most dangerous road in the world begins, as well the guide checks the brakes of the bicycles. Continuing with the tour we see on the way the unique landscape of the Yungas Valley whose landscape is characterized by mountains covered with varied vegetation, precipices, and waterfalls such as “San Juan”.
