Death Road is a must do in Bolivia! Like the other review says, don't be scared off by the stories and reputation. I'm afraid of heights and have never been on a mountain bike in my life. My biking experience consists of riding to my...More

My friends and I decided to experience Death Road with Gravity, as they are known to have the best safety record. Despite the cold and rain/snow at the top, our guide Andy managed to keep our enthusiasm going until we arrived on the gravel part...More

I'm deathly afraid of heights, and had a great time. It's scenically stunning, and so long as you don't act stupidly (don't take selfies while riding, watch where you're going, don't go to fast) you'll survive. Watch out for the weather, though! It was snowing...More

I thought I'd write this review for anyone who is deciding whether to go with the more expensive Death Road mountain biking companies (Gravity, Madness) or the cheaper alternatives, of which there are many in La Paz. My wife and I paid 450 Bols and...More

Had a good time doing the death road with Gravity. Safety first and it showed. They may be the most expensive, but are definitely the best as well! Only downer were the mosquito bites...

I traveled this road in 1989, all the way to Caranavi. The new road is being built right across from it wider and a lot safer. For the dangerous seeking traveler is Excellent. I give it a very good because I almost get off the...More

There are tours going every day - booking the day before is no problem- be aware that most companies only accept cash.

We did it with a very good, in our opinion, company called Gravity. We had 5 women in our group and the breaks and pace was good for them. My girlfriend was quite nervous to do it, but she's very happy she did. Thing is, we... More
