We saw the “end of the world” several times on our trip according to various guidebooks. This one happened to be in Bolivia, where we mountain biked down the death road. Aptly the end of the world was along the death road, so at least that made sense. In Bolivia the end of the world was a particular hairpin turn on the death road. I can’t remember now if it was responsible for the most number of accidents or if it just looked like it should have been the responsible party. Either way our group clustered near the edge of the world for this photo, unwilling to move any closer to what was at least a 100 foot drop into the valley below.

IF YOU GO: Bolivia’s Death Road is a popular tourist attraction from La Paz. It’s actually called the La Paz- Coroico road, and honestly, yes it was a road for vehicles until a few years ago. Definitely go with a tour operator based on your gut feeling and a personal recommendation. You don’t want to be stuck with a group that pushes you to go to fast or too slow. Your tour guide should stop and regather the whole group regularly, especially at the beginning where there are a number of hairpin turns. There are a good number of opportunities for
last minute holidays in Bolivia. Don’t forget to check out our Country Guide to Bolivia.
