Enjoy a mountain bike trip on professional bikes down the Yungas Road, the most dangerous road in the world.

The Yungas Road is also known as Death Road or in Spanish "El Camino de la Muerte". It is a one-lane gravel road that connects La Paz with Coroico. The approximately 65 km long road overcomes proud 3600 vertical meters and winds in countless hairpin bends, close to the precipice through the mountains of Bolivia.

You will receive front suspension bikes, that have the following advantages to full suspension bikes:

- Faster on climbs and sprints

- Faster on roads and smooth trails

- Reduced cost

If you prefer full suspension bikes, you find the same tour with full suspension here.
