1. Mountain Biking on the “Road of Death”
Affectionately known as the “world’s most dangerous road,” Yungas Road in Bolivia curves along the mountainside, ascending and descending thousands of feet. The widest part? A whopping 10 feet, with at least an 1,800 foot drop at its edge — and yes, it’s a two lane highway. Luckily, much of the road, and vehicle traffic, has been rerouted. The original road, though, still remains, and has become a popular destination for extreme mountain biking. The 44 mile journey takes bikers about 6 or 7 hours.
