The distance between Coroico and La Paz is only 70km, but the road to Coroico starts on a summit near La Paz, 4633 meters above sea level, and heads down to 1700 meters above sea level, A 3300 meters descent. Not only that the road is extremely steep, but it is also narrow, muddy, and has steep drops of over 1000 meters instead of margins. A recipe for disaster! And disasters indeed occur- and that is why the road got its name - the Death Road.

Yeah. Sounds risky, but I'd enjoy the thrill.
11 yrs ago - Saturday 10/21/06 - 5:51:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
I probably would, but eh...I don't know. My dad used to drive down it all the time when he lived down there.
11 yrs ago - Saturday 10/21/06 - 5:53:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
Um, mo thanks.
11 yrs ago - Saturday 10/21/06 - 7:10:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
Terrified of heights.


Pass.

11 yrs ago - Saturday 10/21/06 - 7:11:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'll probly would..
11 yrs ago - Saturday 10/21/06 - 7:57:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sure. Sounds cool. Just let me do it during good weather and give me a nice old 1980 4X4 Toyota truck to do it in.
11 yrs ago - Saturday 11/18/06 - 7:33:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
I odn't know...maybe...I'd have to see it and assess it in real life.
11 yrs ago - Saturday 11/18/06 - 7:36:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
...Eeps!

Well...maybe, if I had a good car in good conditions.

11 yrs ago - Saturday 11/18/06 - 7:37:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hell no.
10 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 12/1/06 - 1:29:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd consider it, but I'd probably chicken out at the last minute.
10 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 12/1/06 - 1:40:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
Death Road + My Driving Skills = Recipe For Disaster.
10 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 12/1/06 - 1:52:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
I dont like heights or driving, so there is no chance.
10 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 12/3/06 - 10:56:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'll pass.
10 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 1/27/07 - 12:52:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
that sounds like a great place to REALLY test out my tundra
10 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 1/27/07 - 12:58:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
No way.
I'm terrified of heights...I'd probably have a heart attack.
10 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 1/27/07 - 12:59:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
No way.
I'm terrified of heights...I'd probably have a heart attack.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 3/18/07 - 1:44:11 AM EST (GMT-5)
That would be awesome!
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 3/18/07 - 1:46:31 AM EST (GMT-5)
How about if I hitchike down Death Road on Halloween with a full moon in the sky?
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 3/18/07 - 8:28:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd do it but I would drive really really really really slow.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 3/18/07 - 8:39:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
If it was good conditions, with a good car and the person driving wasn't me and was a good driver, then I'd come along for the ride.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 3/18/07 - 8:44:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hell no.
I would have trouble walking along it, let alone trying to move a vehicle. I'm not good with heights.
10 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 4/1/07 - 9:27:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
Um, if it were the only way to stop terrorists from detonating a nuclear weapon on US soil. Otherwise, no.
10 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 4/15/07 - 8:21:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well some roads here in Greece are really bad which could be something like the Death Road. I wouldn't consider driving on it unless I had no other choice.
10 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 4/15/07 - 8:22:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't chance it.
10 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 4/15/07 - 8:23:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
The picture on the right is gorgeous, but it would be a nightmare for me to actually be on there...

If I had to...
I absolutely would not be able to relax until it was over with...if I survived.
