The Old Yungas Road / Camino Muerte
Once in Coroico, we found the entrance to the old road and we began ascending. At 1500m altitude and in the middle of the rainforest it is pretty hot and humid, but after only 50km you will find yourself at 3600m surrounded by a spectacular alpine landscape. Unfortunately, the road is now not as spectacular as it used to be until 2003, when many trucks were using this one lane road as the main route for transporting goods to and from La Paz. Today this is mainly a tourist attraction, especially for the ones interested in mountain biking.
