15km street ride into La Paz (optional)

This could be the greatest decent you can do on a bike in a day.

Starts at close to 5400m finishes at 1100m with a total drop 4300m

Just a short 1hr and 20min drive from La Paz, we climb to the summit. This short walk takes about 30min to reach the peak that is equivalent to Mt Everest’s base camps height of 5400meters.

The view from here is spectacular, I recall the first time I climbed this I had to wipe a tear from my eye. I was certainly moved by the 360deg view of Lake Titicaca, Illampu, Sajama, Illimani, La Paz and El Alto. Don’t forget your camera this is a view you will want to remember.

After a short quick walk back to our starting point we will gear up, grab your bike, listen to the safety briefing, once we are ready we begin this amazing ride.

This tour will suit any novice to bike junkie. The variety of riding styles will appeal to everyone interested in Mountain Biking. Ride rocky roads, switchbacks, easy single track, cross country, fast long open road riding, plus some urban riding back to the center of La Paz.

The major part of this tour is not a mainstream tour, so no tourists and very little traffic, this ride is off the tourist track.

You will see Indigenous llama farms as they have worked for generations. The scenery is dynamic and changes as we make our way down deep into the lush jungle valley, from the very top of the mountain peaks, we will pass rich red and green cliffs, incredible colorful lakes, waterfalls and the dense Bolivian jungle.

The rout to Zongo is sprinkled with many beautiful waterfalls, streams creeks and a raging river that builds as you follow it down the jungle valley, all with impressive near sheer vertical mountains that frame the landscape.
