Called the “Scary Road”, this 80-km highway connects Coroico and La Paz. It’s a very scary and narrow road that’s only about 3.5 meters wide. There are no barriers to stop cars from falling really far down to the Amazon valley. It’s hard to see because of fog, rain, and dust clouds, and mudslides happen a lot too. In the past, about 200 to 300 people would die on this road every year. But luckily, the number of accidents has gone down because parts of the road have been made wider and safer.
