We’ll ride over the mountain pass La Cumbre 4,680mts and then take the old dirt road down. Along impressing Andean mountain landscapes the road zigzags between high mountain walls and deep abysm. Before a new paved road was build, this very narrow old one was used by cars, trucks and busses in both directions up and down, which was extremely intimidating. Several crosses mark places of accidents, which used to be very tragic and frequent so this route is also known as “the Death Road”. Nowadays, it is a favorite biking route but it also serves for other kind of vehicles. Drivers must go by the left side and who is going down sometimes has to back out to get a wider place to set his car at the cliff so vehicles going up can move close to the hill side. We’ll stay at hotel Panorama.

Day 3 - CHULUMANI-QUIME (7Hrs) (200 Km)
