Description

One-lane gravel road with several step sections and some deep washouts. Most likely only drivable with a 4x4 with high clearance. Calculate at least six hours including fotostops for the 75 km. Most of the time in low gear. If you have a good enough car it certainly is worth the drive as the countryside is breathtaking.

Latest Check-Ins

Road conditions seem to be a lot better now. 3 hours from Urique to the lower camping spot listed on iOverlander and then less than half an hour down to the paved road the next day. This was all at a moderate pace with time for photos and bathroom breaks. Stock 100-series land cruiser, used 4-lo only for the initial climb out of Urique but probably didn’t need to.

Same comment as Oskar below. It took us around 6 hrs from Urique to Batopilas including several photo stops. Stunning drive but definitely only for high-clearance 4x4 and a confident driver. Towards the Urique end are a few low-slung cables and water-hoses over the road, we had to hold them up with a stick to drive our 3m high truck underneath.
