TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Restaurante Oberland La Paz
We spent over two weeks camped in the grounds of the Hotel Oberland. It was a pleasant stay with good security, friendly staff and the owner, Walter, is very helpful and knows where you need to go for everything! The meals in the restaurant were fabulous!

Unfortunately we weren't allowed to take pictures in ...
... point, although I don't know how much help he helmet, arm and knee pads would have been had we plunged down the cliff side. Just to get a feel for the bikes we rode 22km down a smooth asphalt road to the checkpoint where you have to pay to enter the Death Road and where vehicles now take a different route. Thankfully we didn't have to bike up the 8km hills to get to the start of the gravel road and instead got a ride with ...
