The road to Abra Puca Loma: be ready to make room for oncoming vehicles

Abra Puca Loma is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.804m (15,761ft) above the sea level, located in the Cordillera de Lípez in the Sud Lípez Province of the Potosí Department in southwestern Bolivia. It's one of the highest mountain roads of the country.

The road to the pass is totally unpaved It’s not particularly steep. Due its unique location and the climb in elevation over thousands of feet, and passing through remote areas, it is important when driving in these conditions to be prepared. After rain, even a single rainfall, conditions of the road can be challenging. Avalanches, heavy snowfalls and landslides can occur anytime and can sometimes block some sections of the road, being extremely dangerous due to frequent patches of ice. Don’t forget water, food, extra fuel, a warm jacket, a good GPS and maps.
