Description of Chulumani

Chulumani  Chulumani

The best time to visit Chulumani is on August 24 when the whole city celebrates the festive day of their patron Saint Bartholomew, known locally as Fiesta de San Bartolom√©. This city is also famous for Yungas Road also known as Road of Death. Its name is derived from numerous casualties of the unfortunate victims who crashed into deep valley bellow. It is located at the altitude of 5,577 ft (1,700 m). It is not named for nothing. It is narrow and has no rail guards to keep cars from falling from the edge. Additionally the surface of the road is not very good and becomes particularly bad after numerous mountain rains. So don't forget that cars that move uphill have the right of way.
