Coroico and Yungas road towards La Paz

Last part. We leave Santa Rosa, a vicious village of gold miners (we finally understand why these places belong to the gold trail) and we return closed to La Paz going up to the pretty village of Coroico. Here the view embraces the Andean peaks, the Yungas and the Amazon basin. The view is breathtaking.

Finally we take the last and eventful climb to La Paz along the Yungas road (better known as the Death Road or Road of fate), that is the most dangerous road in the world . The small bus limps on the steep slopes, the many intersections with other motor vehicles force us to millimetric maneuvers over the abyss, wrapped in a dark fog. The omens are not the best, but late in the evening we arrive in La Paz, with a wealth of memories and unforgettable experiences.
