10 Worlds Most Scariest Roads
Known as the “Death Road,” Yungas claims the lives of 200 to 300 foolhardy passengers each year, martyred by the road’s spectacular 600-meter drops, lack of guardrails, rockfalls and narrow single lane. The fortunate survivors have placed makeshift memorials to the fallen on the spots where they met their ends. The 96-kilometer Yungas road connects the Amazon rainforest region with the country’s capital, La Paz, and rises to 15,260 ft (4,650 m) before sharply descending to 3,900 ft (1,200 m), transiting quickly from cool Altiplano terrain to rainforest, as it winds through very steep hillsides and atop cliffs; a dramatic change in landscape worth seeing, if you manage to survive the whole way.
