Ride Day 56: Yungas Road, Bolivia / The Death Road by Motorbike

Full Post: Getting to Death Road, Bolivia (North Yungas Road) was always going to be a challenge. However, after meeting with Motorcycle Tours Bolivia and hiring a private guide (Tito) to take us there, we knew we would be in good hands.

I was joined by Chris Moody, another experienced rider I met on the Stahlratte and who joined me in La Paz for the Death Road or as it is known locally as North Yungas Road.

We set off early in the morning, and Tito told us he would take us on a more interesting journey. We bypassed La Paz and went up through the mountains to get to Death Road, Bolivia.

The adventure was crazy fun, first going around slippery cobblestone villages as we went higher and higher dealing with mud, some rain and some very slippery surfaces. At one stage a truck could not get through, and there was a lineup of another 4 or 5 trucks behind it.

Tito decided to bypass this track and go up a slope my KTM, and their Heidenau tires couldn't handle. Basically, my bike just would get traction. We then decided to go back down this ridiculously muddy steep slope and make our way around the trucks.

Tito was a very experienced off-roader and you could tell we were slow for him and his Suzuki, he just wanted to go go go! We ended up going high up this barren mountain with precarious drop off staring us in the face at every turn, surely Death Road, Bolivia would be easier than this., it was great fun, but quite scary.

Although the total trip was only 135 miles (215 kilometers), it still took us more than 9 hours, mainly because we stopped for the views of The Death Road, Bolivia and other roads so many times.

Death Road, Bolivia was as much as expected. Some crazy drop offs but mostly pretty good and steady riding. There were only a few sections that were precarious. It has been a few years now since they built a new road that bypassed the Death Road, so it was easier than the past.

There are still cars, buses, and trucks on the road, but not nearly as many as in the past. The first section has a lot of tour traffic with bicycles, and it was fun watching them all come off through the river crossing and get soaking wet.

Death Road has a legendary status, and I can only imagine trying to cross this in its heyday, but it was great fun, and the weather helped us out. Riding your bike on cliff edges with waterfalls drowning over you can only be described as invigorating.

All in all a great experience with the road to Death Road, Bolivia, more dangerous than Death Road itself.

Death Road - North Yungas Road, Bolivia

The North Yungas Road (also known as Grove's Road, Coroico Road, Camino a Los Yungas, Death Road, Road of death or Road of fate is a road leading from La Paz to Coroico, 56 kilometers (35 mi) northeast of La Paz in the Yungas region of Bolivia. In 1995 the Inter-American Development Bank christened it as the world's most dangerous road. In 2006, one estimate stated that 200 to 300 travelers were killed yearly along the road. The road includes cross markings on many of the spots where vehicles have fallen.

The South Yungas Road connects La Paz to Chulumani, 64 kilometers (40 mi) east of La Paz, and is considered to be nearly as dangerous as the North Road. From Wikipedia

Motorcycle Tours, La Paz, Bolivia

Whilst I was staying at the Oberland Hotel in La Paz, I noticed below there was a Motorbike Tour Company. I went downstairs and talked to the manager about getting a personal tour guide to take us to Death Road by Motorbike.

We had our own bikes and the manager got on the phone and spoke to a few people. The total cost was $120 plus a tip ($50) for the rider whose name was Tito (a legend)

The tour started at 8 am and went all the way through to 6 pm at night. It was absolutely sensational. Tito took us on roads that you would never know about and we went up some crazy mountains. In fact, some of the roads getting to Death Road were scarier than death road, but it was amazing. I have written about the experience on my blog at and I want to thank all of the people, particularly Tito on what was a memorable experience and one I will never forget.

Driving through a new Death Road in Bolivia

While overlanding South America we've found a new Death Road. It's located between Yolosa and Caranavi, not that far from an old and touristic Death Road in Bolivia (featured in Top Gear). Check this out! :)

Trip to Caranavi on the Death Road

The adventure begins driving down the Death Road, through the valleys and arriving to the tropical city of Caranavi, Bolivia. We visited the Mikaelsens, missionaries of the World Mission Prayer League (WMPL). Thank God for the safe trip and the opportunity to visit our fellow workers!

World's Most Dangerous Road (Carretera de la muerte)

The Yungas Road, a 43-mile track cut out of the east side of the Bolivian Andes, is reputed to be the world's most dangerous road in terms of deaths per mile. I first travelled the road in 1981, and what a rush! Over the next twenty-five years I would travel the road dozens of times en route to the Yungas and the Amazon basin, or returning to my beloved La Paz.

In 2006, I returned with National Geographic (and Beyond Productions) to film the road up-close-and-personal as part of the Dangerous World series (see for a preview). It was during that shoot that I witnessed how much the surrounding landscape had changed with the ongoing human encroachment on this delicate ecosystem, and how degraded the watershed had become.

Fate continues to bring me back to the North Yungas, part of a crucial watershed corridor that runs from the Vilcabamba in Peru to Amboro National Park in central Bolivia. Cotapata National Park and Integrated Management Natural Area, through which the World's Most Dangerous Road runs, is continuously under pressure from expanding agriculture, and many species endemic to the area--such as the Cock of the Rock and Spectacled Bear--are fast disappearing. Thanks to the efforts of conservationists like La Senda Verde ( there is at least a reprieve for animals that manage to escape the brutal vortex of illegal animal trafficking in the highlands.

This video highlights my family's first time on the WMDR. Although the road was a thrill, the real highlight turned out to be La Senda Verde, where we had the privilege of interacting with monkeys, macaws and many other rescue animals. Simply spectacular......

The Death Road, Downhill Mountain Bike Ride - Bolivia

At one time legitimately considered the World's Most Dangerous Road, these days this 5 hour downhill mountain bike ride is more about entertaining tourists than it is about life and death transportation. Either way, it's an amazing amount of fun to bike continuously downhill for 5 hours. By no means is it a challenging ride, but what it lacks in skill requirement, it makes up for with amazing scenery and great speed.

The Most Dangerous Road In The World | Death Road, La Paz, Bolivia

The Most Dangerous Road In The World | Death Road, La Paz, Bolivia
Death Road in the Yungas region of Bolivia, also called Grove's Road, Coroico Road, Camino de las Yungas and Road of fate. Leading from La Paz to Coroico, 56 kilometres northeast of La Paz in the Yungas region of Bolivia. It is legendary for its extreme danger and in 1995 the Inter-American Development Bank christened it as the world's most dangerous road, Same as from south — A South Yungas Road (Chulumani Road) exists that connects La Paz to Chulumani, 64 kilometres east of La Paz, and is considered to be nearly as dangerous as the North Road.

Road death was built in the 1930s during the Chaco War between Bolivia and Paraguay Paraguayan prisoners. One of the few routes connecting the Amazon rainforest in northern Bolivia, in particular, the city of Coroico, in La Paz, the largest city in the country.
This is one of the few routes that connects the Amazon rain-forest region of northern Bolivia, or Yungas, to its capital city. Upon leaving La Paz, the road first ascends to around 4,650 meters or 15,260 ft at La Cumbre Pass, before descending to 1,200 meters or 3,900 ft at the town of Coroico, transiting quickly from cool Altiplano terrain to rain-forest as it winds through very steep hillsides and atop cliffs.

The largely single-lane road has no guard rails and cliffs of up to 600 meters (2,000 feet). Most of the road is the width of a single vehicle, about 3.2 meters (10 ft). During the rainy season from November through March, rain and fog can severely hamper visibility, and water runoff can turn the road into a muddy track, affecting traction. In the summer, rockfalls are common and vehicle dust limits visibility as well.

One of the local road rules specifies that the downhill driver never has the right of way and must move to the outer edge of the road. This forces the faster downhill vehicle to stop so that passing can be negotiated safely. Unlike the rest of Bolivia, vehicles are required to drive on the left side of the road, to give the driver a better view of the vehicle's outside wheel and making passing safer.
The danger of the road made it a popular tourist destination starting in the 1990s, drawing some 25,000 thrillseekers. Mountain biking enthusiasts in particular have made it a favourite destination for downhill biking since there is a 64-kilometre (40 mi) stretch of continuous downhill riding with only one short uphill section. There are now many tour operators catering to this activity, providing information, guides, transport, and equipment. Nevertheless, the Yungas Road remains dangerous. At least 18 cyclists have died on the ride since 1998.
