Full Day Mountain Bike Tour to Death Road from La Paz
US$85.00
Overview
Experience adventure with this full-day mountain bike tour of Death Road, favored by thrill-seekers for its steep drops and challenging terrain. You’ll travel to the starting point in La Cumbre, then make your way along the twisting alpine paths to Yolosita. After the ride you’ll enjoy a hotel buffet lunch, shower, and swim. This tour includes safety equipment, trained guides, food and water, a t-shirt, photos, and videos.
What to Expect

Begin the day at 7:45am with a meeting at the bike office in La Paz (if your select hotel is not eligible for pickup). Leave at 8am and head up to La Cumbre (start point), which takes about 1 hour on the van. Upon arrival, you will be 4,200m above sea level. You will get to the summit where instructions will be given by the guides. For about an hour you will be riding on a paved road, until you reach the uphill part - not to worry, you will still be in the van. An entrance fee has to be paid in this part (50 Bs. or 7 USD).

After a short ride on the van you get to the second part where for about three and a half hours you will be going through the famous Death Road on bike. On the way there will be breaks in which you can take pictures, and while you get more instructions by the guides, you will also have your bike checked.

You will get to a warm little town called Yolosita at 1,100m above sea level, from there we take the van and will head to a hotel where you will have a buffet lunch, showers and free time to use a swimming pool. After this relaxing time, you head back to La Paz on a journey in the van for about 3 hours.

Once in La Paz you will be taken to the bike office to get your free t-shirt and DVD with the pictures of the day on it. Tour ends here at approximately 8pm.
