La Paz is a place that is often met with some sceptism from backpackers who are travelling through South America. It has a reputation for being dangerous and not having the wow factor of other capitals on the continent. However, i loved my time there and found it an amazing destination to simply wander around and take in the sights that surrounded you.

The world’s highest capital city has a lot to offer, but one of the stand out activities is actually slightly outside of the city itself. It is famed as ‘The World’s Most Dangerous Road’ due to the number of lives that have been lost on this tight, mountain pass. However, the bike ride itself is not too dangerous if you approach it with the right mindset. Too many backpackers turn up after a late night on the town and are unable to concentrate sufficiently when you have sheer cliff edges just feet away. Many also see it as a race which is another recipe for disaster. But if you prepare correctly and approach the bike ride in the right way then it will be one of the most exhilarating experiences you can have whilst travelling. Hopefully this photo diary will give you just a hint of the experience you can have on ‘The World’s Most Dangerous Road’…
