Death Road, Bolivia
Yungas Road is known worldwide as the most dangerous road in the world. The 40-mile stretch of single track road is filled with steep cliffs on every step and no barriers to protect the drivers from falling off the road. However, the danger surrounding this road turned it into a tourist attraction. Cycling the Yungas road in the world is one of the most popular activities among tourists in Bolivia.
This road wears the nickname ‘Rodovia de Morte’, meaning the Highway of Death. It’s by far the most dangerous road in Brazil because it’s poorly maintained and gangs and bandits are stationed along the way. Additionally, the highway has a winding design that looks amazing from above but it’s definitely not easy to drive on it. In fact, the BR-116 has the world’s highest concentration of big rigs on a road.
