The most dangerous road in the world

Is this the most dangerous road in the world? Situated in Bolivia, just to the north-east of La Paz, the North Yungas has featured on BBC’s Top Gear and previously been billed as the most dangerous road in the world. Take a look at this video and see if you agree! Since the 1990s, it has become something of a tourist attraction and popular with mountain bikers; today there are a number of tour operators catering for visitors to the area.

    What do they do when two vehicles going in opposite directions meet on this road?? Unbelievable! This is the one where the drivers periodically send a busload off the edge, right? I would like to see the bottom of this precipice.. must be a real scrapyard down there.

    I think it might be one way. My daughter travelled down here in a group of mountain bikers earlier this year. Now I have seen this footage she is in BIG TROUBLE!!!

    We cycled down this road in 2008. I thought it was a marketing gimic as I wouldn’t have done it otherwise. It was terrifying! My friend and I sat out various parts if they were really dangerous!
