The Most Dangerous Road in the World: North Yungas Road


The North Yungas Road, famously known as the Death Road, spans 69 kilometers and winds its way through the Cordillera Oriental mountain range in Bolivia. This treacherous road is widely recognized as the most dangerous in the world, yet it has also gained popularity among thrill-seeking mountain bikers. Its construction dates back to the 1930s, when Paraguayan prisoners, amidst the backdrop of the Chaco War, toiled to create this passage.

Ascending to an altitude of 4650 meters at La Cumbre Pass, the road then descends into the lush Amazon rainforest, offering breathtaking views. However, one must exercise caution, as a mere glance off the road reveals a staggering 600-meter drop into the surrounding forest. Serving as a vital link between La Paz and Coroico, a quaint town situated at the edge of the Amazon rainforest, this road is a testament to both its peril and allure.
