Yungas Road

Bolivia’s North Yungas Road, dubbed the “world’s most dangerous road” and “Death Road,” is notorious for the roughly 100 deaths that occur here yearly. This 43-mile stretch of road, with its hairpin curves and 2,600-foot drops in the Andes Mountains, has now become a tourist destination for the daredevil traveler.
