Known as “Death Road” and “Road of Fate”, the North Yungas Road has been frequently labelled as the world’s most dangerous route.
Ascending to 15,256 feet at its highest point, the road connects La Paz and Coroico in Bolivia, winding through stunning mountain scenery and rainforest.
Daring drivers are faced with cliffs of up to 1,970 feet on a road that is single-track in places and even has no guardrails on certain sections.
At one point, it was estimated that 200 to 300 people a year died on this stretch of road that is less than 50 miles long. In one year alone, 25 vehicles plunged off the road and into the ravine.
