Bolivia’s Yungas Road is officially the most hazardous on earth. It is an amazing road carved into the side of a cliff and it’s called the Road of Death. Local people pray before using it and the nearest hospital is a two-hour drive away. There are North Yungas Road and South Yungas Road.

The North Yungas Road (also Grove’s Road, Coroico Road, Camino de las Yungas, “El Camino de la Muerte”, “Death Road”) is a 38 to 43 mile road (depending on source) leading from La Paz to Coroico, 35 miles (56 km) northeast of La Paz in the Yungas region of Bolivia. The South Yungas Road (also Chulumani Road) exists that connects La Paz to Chulumani, 40 miles (64 km) east of La Paz, and is considered to be nearly as dangerous as the north road.

Many people tend to confuse that this beautify road is located in China and it is called Guoling Tunnel.
