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, killing about 100 travellers annually. The road descends from 12,000 ft (3600 m) to 1000 ft (330 m), transitioning quickly from cool altiplano terrain to rain forest as it winds through very steep hillsides and atop cliffs.
