The breathtaking road with landscapes that take your breath away is 69 km long and involves a sudden descent of 3,500 meters. Parts of the road are only 3 meters wide. There are a number of sharp turns and dizzying curves, and safety barriers are rare. Roadside altars are much more common, writes BBC.
White crosses, flower arrangements and yellowed photographs are often seen on the road, as “El Camino de la Muerte” is known for its large number of victims.
So many people have died in accidents on this road built in the 1930s by Paraguayan prisoners of war that it has been named “the most dangerous road in the world”.
