La Paz, Bolivia
The Yungus Road in Bolivia
The Death Road is the most dangerous road in the world. Or at least that’s what the Bolivians say.
The Yungas road (AKA the Death Road) is a 35-mile road from the high mountains into the jungle of Bolivia. A popular tourist activity is to travel it via mountain bike, which makes for a roller-coaster like experience. Over the 35-mile trip you will descend about 7,000 feet. There is hardly any pedaling required as gravity does the work while you enjoy the transitioning landscape of mountains to jungle. Dress in layers as the tour starts very cold and gets extremely hot at the end.
