El Camino de la Muerte – The Yungas, Bolivia

This picture has been taken while I was driving alongside the Death Road as it is often referred to. This road that connect La Paz to Corroico. The beginning of the road is at 4800 meters of elevation and it ends at 1800 meters. 3000 meters of descent in less that 60 kilometers. its name comes from the number of people that get killed while using this road that is in bad condition and present a chasm of 1000 meters in most of its length. The most famous accident occurred in 1983 where a bus with over 100 passengers fall into the canyon
