Where will our dangerous road take us... (PHOTOGRAPHY)

El Camino de la Muerte means ‘death road’. It sees around 100 fatalities per year. Only 43 miles long, the muddy Bolivian thoroughfare plummets over 975 metres in a relentless series of switchbacks with sheer vertical drops at every turn – yet visitors to the road, including around 250 mountain bikers a day during the peak season, insist the astounding mountain scenery mitigates the alarming risks of traversing it
