  • 1. La Paz – “The World’s most Dangerous Road” – La Paz
    The ride begins at La Cumbre (4,700m/15,400 feet) where you’ll see fantastic views of a number of snow-covered peaks, including Huayna Potosí (6,088m/19,973 feet). From here you descend rapidly down a twisting asphalted road among mountain peaks, grazing llamas and alpacas, tiny villages and a drug check-post (?!). You stop for refreshments, photos, and rests along the way -- all the better to give you time to take in the scenery: towering cliff faces, dramatic drops and ever greener vegetation. After a snack you descend further, and after a brief undulating section of road you enter the jungle itself and the most challenging part of the ride. This infamous narrow dirt road is cut precariously into the side of the mountain and descends 2,000m (6,500 feet). With 1,000m+ (3,300 feet) sheer drops off to your left and hulking rock overhangs and cascading waterfalls to your right, you ride through mist, low cloud and dust. As you near the end of the ride it gets progressively hotter and dustier. By the time you arrive at the bottom in Yolosa (1,100m/3,600 feet) you will be tired, hot, dirty and exhilarated. Just below the village of Yolosa you ride down to La Senda Verde Animal Refuge where you enjoy a late pasta and salad buffet lunch, take in the magnificent scenery, spend time relaxing by the pool, enjoying a cold drink and getting to know the rescued animals. The drive back up to La Paz (by car of course) takes approx. 3 – 4 hours and you should expect to arrive between 19h00 – 21h00. End of our services
