Rated As The World's Most Dangerous Road

In the South American country of Bolivia.

It consists of 70 km of dirt and rock heading north from La Paz, the world's highest capitol (altitude 3,660 metres), to Coroico, a beautiful cloud forest town at the rim of the Amazon basin. Its catchy nickname is due to the 26 vehicles that fall off the road per year. About 200 people annually lose their lives here. A fatal accident every fortnight is not uncommon on the Coroico road (the July disaster brought the death toll during the previous eight months to 55) and in 1995 the Inter-American Development Bank declared this, the world's most dangerous road. The only road that exists to get to the Amazon from La Paz, it is carved into the sides of a canyon. It can have vertical drops for 500 metres and has no guardrails. Consequently, most Bolivians take the time to pray before their descent. After all, it could be their last.

There is nothing to fear....you just need to imagine there you are driving on a one way road....but if you will look on the open side down, you are bound to get nervous and fall-off....:hmm:
