EPIC SORATA SINGLETRACK
Are you bored of the same old rides and of biking the same old, crowded, commercial trips such as the World’s Most Dangerous Road? If you are an experienced mountain biker, our Epic Sorata Singletrack is the cure.
This one-day singletrack downhill ride to the village of Sorata takes you from La Paz into a deep, fertile valley at the foot of majestic Mt. Illampu (6400m) through a secret trail with jaw-dropping views of the Andes mountains and the lush valleys of Los Yungas below.
Prepare to have your concept of Downhill Mountain Biking through stunning scenery challenged.
Mayhem Adventures’ guides have been riding and exploring the trails around Sorata since they can remember (as local riders, pretty much they have been riding all of their lives in the region).
Our designated guide for the day will meet you in La Paz early morning along with our private vehicle and top-notch mountain bikes. You will be provided with full-face helmets, riding gloves, elbow and knee guards (full armor).
Our vehicle equipped with great music and a fully-responsible driver will take you past the town of El Alto en route to Lake Titicaca across the vast Altiplano (highlands) and along the Cordillera Real (Royal Mountain Range). The drive will take approximately 2.5 hrs before you arrive at an elevation of around 4.500m among snow-capped mountains.
Immediately after a safety briefing, plunge into the massive valley below through a secret singletrack trail with steep descents, berms, drops, jumps and great challenging obstacles all along stunning scenery without the hundreds of riders in the crowded ‘death road’ in the other side of the mountains. We will literally have this ride for ourselves.
All in all, we will have descended around 3.000 meters! (10.000ft) before we arrive in the quaint village of Sorata for a well-deserved lunch. We climb back aboard our vehicle for the scenic drive back to La Paz to arrive in the evening. This will be one of the most memorable downhill mountain biking rides you will ever experience in your life.
