 Old Yungas Road, Bolivia(玻利维亚永加斯北路)

Bolivia's Old Yungas Road is the most dangerous road. It is better to call it "The Road of Death" because it has taken more than thousands of lives – between 200 and 300 every year. The road is extremely narrow and often wrapped by a fog and vapors. The road twists and turns for about 40 miles between La Paz and Coroico, offering no protection from the sheer cliffs. Its highest latitude reaches over 3,000 meters. While driving on this dangerous road, you must believe on your destiny rather than your driving skills.

Fortunately, a brand new bypass was eventually built. If you want to have a glimpse of this death road, you could choose the new road; if you like teasing death, then there is always the old road.
