When in Bolivia, this is one place you should avoid. This road, called Camino de las Yungas (alternatively known as Death Road), claims 200 – 300 human lives every year. Yet, the road is still in use.
Once can see many memorial crosses placed along the road.
And recently fallen trucks.
Inter-American Development Bank considers this road to be the most dangerous in the world.
The road is 69 kilometres (43 miles) long and connects the Amazon rainforest with the capital city of Bolivia, La Paz. It was built by prisoners in the 1930s.
