The Road of Death

There's no doubting about this road's reputation as to why it was called as "The World's Most Dangerous Highway".

Bolivia's infamous North Yungas Road strips line the small villages of the Yungas region that keeps the transporters and passengers thrilled for what would maybe their last joyride. The harrowing 43-mile unrailed lane twists and turns above the steepy Bolivian valley. About 200-300 people were the estimated death toll each year! No wonder why it was called El Camino de la Muerta or as an English traveler would say "The Road of Death"!
