Stremnaya road, located in Bolivia, is called the road of death


Stremnaya Road and Yungas Road: The Roads of Death.


In the country of Bolivia is a truly amazing road carved into the side of a cliff. Stremnaya road and Yungas Road is called the road of death.

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. It is legendary for its extreme danger, one estimate is that nearly 100 travellers annually have died along the road — the road moreover includes Christian crosses marking many of the spots where such vehicles have fallen. The road descends from approx. 14,100 ft (4300 m) to 6200 ft (330 m), transitioning quickly from cool altiplano terrain to rain forest as it winds through very steep hillsides and atop cliffs.

Check out these incredible photos.

The road was built in the 1930s during the Chaco War by Paraguayan prisoners. It is one of the few routes that connects the Amazon rainforest region of northern Bolivia, or Yungas, to its capital city. However, an alternative, much safer, road connecting La Paz to Coroico is nearing completion.

Because of the extreme dropoffs, single-lane width, and lack of guardrails, the road is extremely dangerous. Further still, rain and fog can make visibility precarious, the road surface muddy, and loosen rocks from the hillsides above. On July 24, 1983, a bus veered off the Yungas Road and into a canyon, killing more than 100 passengers in what is said to be Bolivia’s worst road accident. One of the local road rules specifies that the downhill driver never has the right of way and must move to the outer edge of the road. This forces fast vehicles to stop so that passing can be negotiated safely. The danger of the road ironically though has made it a popular tourist destination starting in the 1990s. Mountain biker enthusiasts, in particular, have made it a favorite destination for downhill biking.

A 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.

Stop the Bolivian army from using dogs as live practice targets

The Bolivian army uses live dogs as targets for their soldiers to shoot.
They tie them up in a standing position and use them for target practice.
Nothing more needs to be said about this cruel act.

Grand Chorro
Dit bergpad dient nu als toegang naar Makinodromo, het beroemde berggebied van Grand Chorro in Spanjes Andalucia.
Het is de meest bochtige en gevaarlijke bergpad.
Het gebied van Grand Chorro dat in het zuiden van Spanje ligt is beroemd onder touristen en bergwandelaars door zijn overweldigende landschap en klimmogelijkheden,

MOUNT EVEREST

This full screen panorama was published in connection with the 50 year anniversary, to honor the first two men who reached the top of Everest on May 29,1953. Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay.

Since then 1,200-1,500 have climbed to the top. Nobody knows the exact number. More than 140 climbers have died on the way.

On May 24,1989, Australian photographer and mountaineer, Roderick Mackenzie, reached the summit, he was no. 271. He made, as far as known, the only 360 degree panorama film view from the top.

THE VIEW FROM MOUNT EVEREST:
