Any of you Top Gear fans will probably have first seen the Yungas road (death road) on the Xmas special a few years back. The road from La Paz to Coroico is narrow, has huge drops and has taken thousands of lives over the years which earned it the reputation as the worlds most dangerous road. Good news is that today there is a new road in place and there is less traffic on the old road so you can freely cycle down it at your own risk! I now have a t-shirt to say I survived the death road.
