Barracuda Biking – Cycling Death Road Bolivia Have you heard of the Cycling Death Road Bolivia? Just outside of La Paz, the highest administrative Capital city in the world and nestled in the Altiplano Mountains of Bolivia, lies the world’s most dangerous road. Built in the 1930’s during the Chaco War by Paraguayan prisoners, the Yungas road from La Paz to Coroico was the first ever connection from the mountains to the Amazon. Starting at 4650 meters and descending to 1200 meters!
Christened 'the world's most dangerous road' after a popular Top Gear episode showed presenters grappling with the narrow track, Death Road in Bolivia has now become a popular tourist attraction. You can pay to hire mountain bikes and suits, and whizz down the bumpy single-lane road. Watch out for the huge lorries battling their way up - it's still a two-way road. Oh, and there's a deathly drop on one side of you. Enjoy!
