Don't be so scared it's not as hard as it use to be as cars don't frequent the road as much. Be wary of high prices as I did it with high altitude and they charged 820 bolivian is when tour company next to. Y...More

In August 2017 I did Death Road with Barro Biking agency. I paid 350 bolivianos for a standard (cheaper) bike. The tour was just ok, you get what you pay for. The only problem was lunch. The food looked good and was tasty, but some...More

Don't miss this amazing experience on this beautiful road! It's worth every penny and if your not a crazy risk taker I deem it to be very safe. We did this with Gravity Bike tours and they are safe, friendly and explain everything in detail...More

Really exciting activity to do when in La Paz. Not cheap for the standards of the country, but I guess it's priced for tourists. We paid around 45£ for equipment (bike, safety, clothing, etc), light breakfast, lunch and transport.

The Yungas road and for that matter the entire region, they are both truly magical, there is simply no other word to describe them. This area basically merges the top of the Altiplano and the heart of the Amazon jungle. It takes travelers from dry,...More

Stunning scenery, great changes in surrounding fauna over a 3000 metre descent, great opportunity for a bit of an adrenaline rush if you cycle the road. If going for the cycling opportunity, opt for Gravity if possible.

Good question re your "kids", but how old are they? The descent is steep and the rough road adds to the danger.There are no guard rails! As an elementary teacher 35 years experience, I would be very hesitant about taking... More

No worries! It's easy for anybody in good health-and it's all down hill.The only dangers would be looking at the scenery rather than at the road-there is no safety barrier and the fall would be fatal.Hitting a rock on the... More

There are tours going every day - booking the day before is no problem- be aware that most companies only accept cash.
