“World’s Most Dangerous Road” Pictures December 4, 2006

La carretera mas peligrosa del mundo

Is the Stemnaya road in Bolivia the “World’s Most Dangerous Road”; or is the Sichuan-Tibet Road in China. The link here to this Spanish site has the best pictures of the Bolivian road, which received its reputation due to some particularly bad years (especially in the 80’s and 90’s) when the road averaged one person dead a day. The worst ever accident involved one vehicle going over the side and 128 people dying!!!! This was a large cargo style truck packed with people returning from a football game that drove over the edge. Still there are downhill mountain biking tours for the thrill seekers. Now there is a newer and safer road, but it takes longer .

If you click on the link to the Rick McCharles Blog , you may recognize the pictures from a viral e-mail that actually combined pictures of both roads. This site includes pictures of muddy Siberia and extreme Hiking in China. You decide what is the worst.

Is there no more roads in the area for use? From the picture, it is very scary and i observed that you have two bigs cars at the same time.
The goverment can surely contruct a safer road.

Looks like fun to me. I would love to take a twin-turbo car about 50mph on there. http://www.tailofthedragon.com US most fun road 318 curves in 11 miles. I ran it in 13 min’s, the record 9min’s.
