Cycling the death road | Bolivia | 13th November
Travel Latin America Bolivia

Also known as the “World’s most dangerous road”. I found it touristy and overhyped, but still fun. The road itself is a crazy piece of engineering - and to think it once had constant traffic. A new paved road has been built on the other side of the mountains, so only a few cars now take this perilous option.

It is dangerous, because the tour agencies will happily take groups of people that have never cycled before. And it’s not exactly a smooth downhill track - if you have a wipeout too close to the edge, you’ll go straight over the cliff.
