Yungas Road (Camino de la Muerte)

14 reviews of Yungas Road (Camino de la Muerte)

The Most Dangerous Road in the World

I think that whoever named this road had never travelled in the Himalayas or the Karakorum. The road is really pretty dangerous, especially if you have to take the old road if the new one is blocked by landslides. It has become very popular to descend this extreme road by mountain bike. It's a one hour drive through the mountain pass from Paz to Coroico. The passage of the summit is at 4700 meters above sea level, surrounded by huge mountains that are over 5000 meters, and is the main passage between Paz and Yungas (Amazon basin). The route descends 3600 meters in altitude in 64 kilometres, from 4700 meters to the subtropical valleys of the Yungas, passing the villages of Yolosa (1200 meters) and Coroico (1500 meters).

Travelling the Death Road

My experience was amazing. We went down a bike bath some 44kms asphalt and 22kms gravel. The scenery is amazing, with lush vegetation and waterfalls going down the road, you have to pass across rivers, etc. The road is dangerous with many cliffs hundreds of meters high, so you have to stay focused during the descent, in any case I will remember the many animitas and crosses that are along the way. Take a good camera.
