The Las Cascadas Ecolodge is a natural refuge located only 3 hours from La Paz city in the region of North Yungas. In 150 hectars of natural reserver you will find 7 unique waterfalls. This ecolodge is the base for several adventure tourism activities, such as zip-line, rafting/kayking rappel in the waterfalls, bird-watching and trekking among old coffee and coca plantations.

We begin the tour by picking you up from your hotel in central La Paz city.
In the office you will be given special protective equipment and the bicycle for the trip.
The tour leaves at 7:15 aproximately towards la Cumbre. The tour guide will give a briefing on security and instructions about maneouvering the bicycle safely on this difficult route.
We will take a short ride on a paved road. You will have the opportunity to enjoy the view of the snowy mountains.
Once we arrive a the police checkpoint in Undavi, we will pay the entry fees for the Bicycle Park. The cost is 50 Bs.- per person. The bicycle park is route without much traffic. The groups of cyclists can ride without being disturbed as they have preference here.
The original Death Road (Camino de la Muerte) begins in Unduavi and there is no asphalt cover, only dirt and stone roads. The name is not a coincidence, the route has sharp turns that lead to infamous precipices.
Water from the mountains also flows on the road, making it even more dangerous. We recommend not to get distracted taking photos and videos. Leave this to the staff travelling with you.
Consider that the most dangerous part is without doubt San Juan, where the road forks and is only 3 meters wide. We will provide a series of snacks during the trip (bananas, chocolate bars, sodas or water).
The tour of the Death Road (Camino de la Muerte) ends in Yolosa town, located at 1200 meters above sea level. The region has a semi-tropical climate and an average temperature of 28 degrees centigrade.
After finishing the biking activity in Yolosa, we will travel to the Eco Lodge located about 45 minutes from Caranavi.
You will have lunch in the Eco Lodge and afterwards we will begin with the zip line activities.
You will zipline 1 km through the air at a height of over 200 meters on a 0.5 inch german steel cable. For this activity, we use high-security pulleys, harnesses, gloves and helmets.
