Bolivia's Road of Death
You love Mom. So don't take her to "the world's most dangerous" anything, be it a precipitous national park trail or a beach with soul-snatching riptides. In this case, it's a road widely considered the most hazardous on earth. According to the BBC, it's estimated that 200 to 300 people die annually on Bolivia's Yungas Road, a lofty cliff-side highway that hugs the curves of mountainous rain forest terrain. Despite its off-putting moniker and troubling reputation (or, perhaps, because of it), adrenaline-seeking tourists come to Yungas Road in droves to conquer its dangerous route by bike.
