Bolivia Things to Do: 203 reviews and 302 photos


I biked down 70 kilometers on the infamous Death Road. It was 2 Britts, Eddy the Guide, and me battling down the most dangerous road on Earth! The road was coined the Death Road back in 1997 because a study determined that it was the most dangerous road on Earth. In fact, there is at least one fatal accident per month! All in all, we biked down a 3000 meters decent from an altitude of 4700 meters above sea level to an altitude of 1700 above sea level. We went through the four seasons from a freezing start with snow to a tropical end below. Read more about this exciting bike trek on my travelogue
