Death Road Bolivia Tours

Biking adventure from La Paz to Coroico

BDeath Road in La Paz Bolivia is the name given to official most dangerous road in the world, Yungas Road. This road stretches about 61 km, and covers La Paz to Coroico. It was officially named the world’s most dangerous road in 1995, with an estimated 200 to 300 people killed on this road every year.

In recent years, this has become a major tourist attraction in La Paz, with people wanting to get their t-shirt that says “I survived my ride on the world’s most dangerous road” as downhill mountain biking tour companies take advantage of tourists need for adventure and adrenalin rushes!

However, do not be alarmed by its title…although the Death Road definitely needs to be respected, it has become much safer in recent years. Traffic has been stopped on many parts of the road to give cyclists a fun and safe trip. What is not so safe is that there are some cheap tour operators in La Paz who use bad bikes. These might not regularly maintained or the brakes may not be regularly checked, so be very careful of which company you choose when taking a tour down the Death Road.

At Andean Ways we’re implementing our own quality bikes in these recent months focusing on safety matching for our adventures passengers.
