Yungas: Coroico, Caranavi, Death Road
To the North of La Paz you can take a trip to the Yungas either on the new paved 2-lane highway by bus or car (where you can visit towns such as Coroico, Chulumani and Caranavi or even continue on as far as Rurrenabaque or Trinidad in Bolivia's second largest state of Beni) or by way of one of the most exhilarating and famous (or shall we say infamous) tourist attractions of Bolivia, by biking down what has become known as Death Road. As a child I took this road many times. It lives up to its name and can cost you your life.
