The Death Road, Coroico and the Coffee Tour

Heute ist sie eine der von Touristen meistbesuchten Destinationen Boliviens: „die Todesstraße“, auch bekannt als „Gefährlichste Straße der Welt“, eine Straße, die vom Gipfel auf einer Höhe von 4.000 Metern über dem Meeresspiegel zu einer subtropischen Ortschaft auf 300 Metern über dem Meeresspiegel hinabläuft.

Diese Straße war der Hauptzugangsweg zum Urwald bei Los Yungas und wurde wegen der extremen Gefahr zur Legende. Heute ist es eine Schnellstraße, die fast exklusiv für touristische Rundfahrten und Abfahrten mit dem Mountainbike genutzt wird.
