Photographer's Note

In one side, a wall; in the other, a precipice that can reach 600 meters high. The width of the road varies from 3 to 5 meters, but there is traffic in both directions. Asphalt? Only if it's being carried by a truck that takes the risk of crossing it! The road is made of dirt (frequently mud) and gravel, with some waterfalls falling over it, making it crumble down little by little.

It was considered the world's most dangerous road, attracting tourism. Tourists from all over the world do the route daily by bike. There are 64km, but it's hardly necessary to ride, because the road starts at 5000 meters over sea level and ends at 1400. For safety reasons, it was not possible to stop to take pictures of the most dangerous parts of the road!
