Bolivian road: you take the risk?










This is a road in Bolivian mountain. It is easy to see the danger but maybe
the truck drivers doesn’t care about their life or most probably they don’t has any other chance to earn some money.

Bolivia’s “Road of Death”


August 4, 2007 · No Comments



North Yungas Road is hands-down the most dangerous in the world for
motorists. If other roads could be considered impassable, this one clearly endangers your life. It runs in the Bolivian Andes, 70 km from La Paz to Coroico, and plunges down almost 3,600 meters in an orgy of extremely narrow hairpin curves and 800-meter abyss near-misses. A fatal accident happens there every couple of weeks, 100-200 people perish there every year. In 1995 the Inter-American Development Bank named the La Paz-to-Coroico route “the world’s most dangerous road.” Among the route there are many visible reminders of accidents, wreckages of lorries and trucks lie scattered around at the bottom… (read BBC article)

Apparently some companies make business on the road’s dubious fame by selling the extreme bike tours down that road. “Gravity Assisted Mountain Biking” is one of them. (you can read one such biker’s account here.)
If you are nuts enough to consider it, please be advised that you will be only adding to the road hazards, as it’s hard to spot a cyclist on the road’s hairpin curves, and your shrieks (as you fall down the abyss) will disturb the peace and quiet of the villagers nearby.
