DAY 1

Death Road

The mountain biking to Coroico starts at 7:30 a.m. when we pick you up from your hotel. We then go by transport to La Cumbre (1hr. From La Paz), which is the starting point at 4.700 m.a.s.l.

First, we start with a 22 km downhill on asphalt (tarmac) road. At the police checkpoint (after 45 min.) all tourists pay 25 Bs for the entrance to the national park. This first section is for you to develop confidence and get used to the bike. Don’t worry, the safety van is always behind the group and we have water stops, photos and bike checks.

We then hit “Death road” always in a compact group (safety first!!!). We will take some snack breaks for chocolate, fruit and more. Finally, the end of the tour is in Yolosa (a town 20min. from Coroico) arriving to Yolosa at 12:00 aprox. At this point we arrive so dirty that we need a shower, so the next stop is in a hotel with showers, a swimming pool and a buffet lunch as well. We can enjoy Coroico´s weather for a couple hours. Coroico is a warm, tropical town at a much lower altitude than La Paz.

At approximately 2:00 p.m. it´s time to go back to La Paz using the new road. We will arrive in La Paz Approximately at 7:30 where you will be dropped off at Todo Turismo us station. The bus towards Uyini will depart at 9:00 pm

On every ride we have English speaking guides, with years of experience who are first-aid and rope rescue trained and we ride with you so we can watch your riding and offer advice, tips where appropriate, plus be on-hand to immediately attend to medical or mechanical problems.
