Getting to Death Road, Bolivia (North Yungas Road) was always going to be a challenge. However, after meeting with Motorcycle Tours Bolivia and hiring a private guide (Tito) to take us there, we knew we would be in good hands. I was joined by Chris Moody, another experienced rider I met on the Stahlratte and who joined me in La Paz for the Death Road or as it is known locally as North Yungas Road.
After nearly 3 weeks in Peru, it was time to go from my last stop in Puno and across the border by motorbike into La Paz, Bolivia. The trip would take me following across mostly on paved roads and swept along high altitude valleys for most of the way through a variety of weather conditions. Thankfully there was little to no traffic on this road as it is the northernmost border town from Peru to Bolivia.
After spending 5 nights touring Machu Picchu and The Sacred Valley, I was off again on the road to Puno, Peru, on Lake Titicaca. I started off at before 6 am and would ride into the evening traveling over 550 miles (910 kilometers). I would travel through cities and villages such as Andahuaylillas, San Pedro, San Pablo, Arequipa, Moquegua, Cutimbo on my way to my final destination on Puno, Peru
