R1200GS on Death Road - The most Dangerous Road in the World? | Salar de Uyuni

Published on

Death Road and Salar de Uyuni. Two stunning places in Bolivia. This is the third episode of our adventure in South America. The bikes: 2015 BMW R1200GS and 2018 R1200GS Adventure.

The Death Road is a touristic attraction today - when we got there, we saw a lot of teenagers riding down on it and having some beers at the end. If paying attention, there's nothing scary on the Bolivian Death Road. But a few decades ago it wasn't just a tourist thing. It was a connecting road between La Paz and the Yungas, there were cars and buses over there, and a lot of people died.

Salar de Uyuni - i'll never forget it. We've been lucky enough to be there in late January, when the salt desert is flooded - the view is fantastic. It's just riding on the clouds. Yeah, riding, not walking because we entered with our bikes over there. It's a bit dangerous for the electronics, I know, but it's worth it!

After Chile and Peru, Bolivia is the third country we visit on our R1200GS bikes in the South American Adventure. The next destination: Argentina.
