There are many roads to the world that you can avoid. Death road is one of them, located in La Paz in Bolivia. A gravel two-way over a mountain with steep cliffs meter deep. Psst – the road with the most fatal accidents was aptly nicknamed Death road.
In 2006, one estimate stated that 200 to 300 travelers were killed yearly along the road. The road includes cross markings on many of the spots where vehicles have fallen.
The danger of the road made it a popular tourist destination starting in the 1990s, drawing some 25,000 thrillseekers. Mountain biking enthusiasts, in particular, have made it a favorite destination for downhill biking since there is a 64-kilometre (40 mi) stretch of continuous downhill riding with only one short uphill section. There are now many tour operators catering to this activity, providing information, guides, transport and equipment.
Do you dare?!?!
