Amazing scenery- truly terrifying to think that this was a main highway! Stunning - worth a visit, if you are young then bike it otherwise 4WD.

Very scary road to go buy car or bicycle. We went there with cycling tour. It was amazing: the views, road feeling. If you don't want to ride on it, it worth to see the beginning of the road.

It has such a nice view and it’s 60km down, what more could you ask for? With a good guide and a good safety bus it’s a lot of fun to do! Check barracuda biking central La Paz.

Highly recommend that everyone visiting La Paz at least visits the Yungas Road, but even better if you cycle

Las Yungas was absolutely beautiful. People mainly get scared because of the location being known as Camino de la Muerte. Many have dropped to their deaths while driving because of how narrow the road is and the dense fog that limits your distance to see...More

Good question re your "kids", but how old are they? The descent is steep and the rough road adds to the danger.There are no guard rails! As an elementary teacher 35 years experience, I would be very hesitant about taking... More

No worries! It's easy for anybody in good health-and it's all down hill.The only dangers would be looking at the scenery rather than at the road-there is no safety barrier and the fall would be fatal.Hitting a rock on the... More
