The foothills of the towering Illimani Mountain (at an altitude of 6,426m), the eternal symbol of La Paz, lend themselves to some incredible trails. In the pre-Inca language, Aymara, Illimani means Golden Eagle, and not only will you see eagles and maybe even condors, but you’ll feel like one too as you fly down these extreme trails with a bird’s eye view of the small towns in the beautiful valley below.
• Multiple trail options for varied ability levels.
• Start your ride at the foot of the mighty Illimani Mountain.
• Freeride bliss close to La Paz, Bolivia.
Intermediate to advanced mountain bikers looking for an off-the-beaten-track adventure. A must do for an MTB holiday in South America.
Starting in the foothills of the nearby Illimani Mountain, these enduro-style freeride trails will take you on an adventure along dramatic ridges, on the edge of steep canyon rims, along remote walking trails and alongside antiquated farms in a remote valley. The Illimani trails are freeride in nature meaning in many places it is “choose your own adventure” from point A to point B with easier and harder lines to choose from through a seemingly endless, barren bicycle playground of natural jumps, drops, and steeps (if you’re up for the challenge) — all in a gorgeous valley with big descents and amazing views. One of the best bike tours you’ll find in South America.
