In the first part the asphalt road is quite good (18 kilometers) therefore is easy to gain speed, we will recommend not endangering yourself; we count with experienced biking guides, however this trip has been structured in this way.

The second part (43 kilometers), of our journey goes along the dirt road quite twisting with towering cliff faces; we will make stops for unforgettable pictures and snacks. After a snack we descend further, and after a brief undulating section of road we enter the jungle itself and the most challenging part of the ride. This infamous narrow dirt road is cut precariously into the side of the mountain and descends 2.000m. With 1.000 m sheer drops off to our left and hulking rock overhangs and cascading waterfalls to our right, we ride through mist, low cloud and dust. With your positive attitude and our expert instruction, coaching and supervision you can safely enjoy some of South America s most dramatic and beautiful scenery as you hurtle down the road.  After five hours riding on our mountain bikes we are ready to enjoy a delicious meal at the restaurant, after a refreshing hot shower if you feel like it swim, taking advantage of the low altitude, (we provide shampoo and tower for each client) after a well deserved break we get ready to get our way back to La Paz city  on board of our vehicle..
