Riding the World’s Most Dangerous Road

The Death Road, was, until 2009 the only road linking Bolivia’s capital city La Paz and Coroico in the North East. A wonderfully picturesque, 64 km super narrow road carved through the mountains. Featuring delightful 1,000 m+ sheer drops. In 2006, one estimate suggested that 200 to 300 people were annually killed in road accidents, giving the road the title of the ‘World’s Most Dangerous Road’. In 2009 the new road linking the two cities was completed, leaving the Death Road for thrill seeking mountain biking enthusiasts like us to conquer.
