The Most Dangerous Road In World

North Yungas Road is hands-down the most dangerous in the world for motorists. 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.”

  1. Wow. You see things like this in the movies all the time, but never say “I’ll bet that’d be a great shortcut!”

    Just don’t mention ‘rock slide’.

  2. I will never curse my winding mountain roads again every time I venture to town! Unbelievable….Heaven help you if you ever had an emergency….

  3. I forgot if this was in brazil or in argentina, im not even sure i know its some where in S.A though. You would think the goverment wasent so corrupt that they would dig the roadout ten more feet. So sad.
    Anyways, good photos by the way
