Mountain Biking El Camino De La Muerte

****   Add a review
#1 of 5 mountain bike trails in Bolivia
#7,167 in the world

The North Yungas Road (also Grove's Road, Coroico Road, Camino de las Yungas, El Camino de la Muerte, Road of Death, and Death Road) is a 66km road leading from La Paz to Coroico, 56 km (35 miles) 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". One estimate is that 200-300 travelers were killed yearly along the road. The road includes crosses marking many of the spots where such vehicles have fallen.
But that was back in the day! Nowadays the road is only used by tour operators and riders and the crazy drivers use a new sealed road that follows a different route.
