The Death Road is currently one of the most popular tourist destinations of Bolivia, is also known as "The World's Most Dangerous Road", is a route of 65 km long from the "Summit", a step of high mountain in the Andes, at 4000 meters, which until 15 years ago this route was the main access road to the forest of the Yungas. This road becomes legendary for its extreme danger because of its steep slopes, sharp curves, with a width of a single lane road in many segments (3 meters wide). Currently the form of access to populations like Los Yungas, Coroico and Yolosa is through a new paved road, so "The Road of Death" is today consolidated almost exclusively as tourist circuit for the mountain bike descent.
