La Paz - Ruta de la Muerte - La Paz
We pick you up directly at your hotel and then we leave for 1 hour drive in the direction of the pass located at 4300m of altitude from which we will start our descent.
The first part of our descent will be on an asphalt road on which we will evolve during approximately 1 hour. We will have the time to stop and enjoy the scenery throughout these 21km. We will have a lunch break at the end of the asphalt part before continuing for another 10km until the beginning of our second section of descent, this time on a track: the mythical Ruta de la Muerte!
This track known as the most dangerous road in the world (for buses and large vehicles, rest assured…) will offer you throughout your 3-4 hours of descent a unique scenery where you can stop to enjoy many breathtaking panoramas.
We will end our activity in the early afternoon with a good meal in one of our partner restaurants. You will have the opportunity to take a shower and regain your strength before our vehicle takes us back to La Paz.
Return to La Paz at the end of the afternoon.

The climate varies greatly according to the regions travelled through. From April to November, the sky is clear, although light rains are always possible. In altitude, it is pleasant during the day and cold at night. So bring warm clothes, even if you can walk around in a T-shirt during the day. Beware of the sun, which is strong at high altitudes, and bring a hat, sun cream and sunglasses.
No visa is required for stays of less than 90 days. You must travel with a passport that is still valid for 6 months after your stay.
When visiting high altitude areas, adverse effects such as headaches, nausea, insomnia and fatigue affect some people. However, the trip is designed to allow our body to adapt gradually (increase in red blood cells).
All major cities have modern private clinics with care comparable to what we have in Europe. However, you have to pay on the spot and then ask for reimbursement from your health insurance company.
We advise you to check whether your insurance covers medical costs in the countries you visit and if not, to seek reimbursement. Repatriation insurance is compulsory.
Currency / Credit Cards
Dollars and euros are accepted in the shops of the big cities. There are exchange houses everywhere. However, it is better not to carry large sums of money with you.
Credit cards are accepted in all ATMs (visa, mastercard, diners, american express). The commission of the bancomat is between 5 and 10USD.
In the service sector, it is normal to leave a tip when you are happy with the service. Between 5 and 10% of the value of the service is usual.
Whenever you travel, remember to keep fit. Even for “Discovery” trips, by preparing yourself physically you will adapt more easily to the altitude and enjoy your discoveries.
For trekking trips, develop your endurance by running or practicing your endurance several times a week.
