Our Yungas Cloud Forest Mountain Biking experience begins by taking you by private transport from downtown La Paz to La Cumbre, a 4500masl mountain pass, where you saddle up and begin your descent into the Yungas Cloud Forests by mountain bike. You will be fully protected with helmet, goggles and gloves and accompanied by an experienced cycling guide as you set off, first along the paved highway running from La Paz to the northern reaches of the department and then along the unpaved “Camino de la Muerte” where you’ll be free of vehicle traffic and headed downhill almost the entire way. There are plenty of opportunities to stop, take in the phenomenal views and otherwise enjoy a day in the lush green landscapes of the Yungas eco-region. The day’s program includes fully-supported mountain biking, bilingual guides, snacks, lunch and everything else you will need for a fantastic day. A visit to La Paz is not complete without a visit to the Yungas Cloud Forest region and getting there by bike is the best way to go – if you love adventure, being outside and getting a bit dirty, this is the perfect experience!
