Christened 'the world's most dangerous road' after a popular Top Gear episode showed presenters grappling with the narrow track, Death Road in Bolivia has now become a popular tourist attraction. You can pay to hire mountain bikes and suits, and whizz down the bumpy single-lane road. Watch out for the huge lorries battling their way up - it's still a two-way road. Oh, and there's a deathly drop on one side of you. Enjoy!
