  • Deadliest Journeys - Peru: Vertigo In The Andes

    51:10

    From the south to the north of Peru, deep canyons cut through the Andes mountain range. To supply gold mines, cultivate their vines or quite simply return to their villages, men have no other choice but to embark on improbable tracks, cut in the rock. At the end of the road, the big companies always find their place there, baited by the fabulous natural resources of the country, whether it is its basements filled with precious metals or its waters full of fish. But it is rare that all this wealth benefits small hands, those who have to bend in half at the end of the galleries, scrape the earth in the ammonia vapors or risk their lives at the end of a 60 rope. meters high, for a handful of euros ... From the valley of the Marañon river to the Cotahuasi canyon through the Paracas desert, this Route of the Impossible takes the crossroads of a Peru with grandiose landscapes, but where life comes at a high price ...

  • Deadliest Journeys - Bolivia: The Road Of Death

    51:00

    There are two worlds in Bolivia. That of the Altiplano, the highlands, perched at an altitude of more than 4000 meters. And that of the Amazon basin, which tops out at a few hundred meters above sea level. Between the two, there is a transition region, made of vertiginous precipices and trails that descend the Andean Cordillera in a few tens of kilometers. . It is the region of the Yungas, a country where the horizontal does not exist. In these valleys winds a road, the only means of communication between La Paz, the administrative capital of the country, perched on the Altiplano, and the riches of the Amazon basin. The Bolivians nicknamed it el camino de la muerte, the road to death. Highest point: the La Cumbre pass, 4700 meters, at the exit of La Paz. 78 kilometers further, we are barely 900 meters. Along this road of the impossible, we follow the story of a community of cocaleros, coca growers clinging to the slopes of the mountain. To carry their loads to the road, they stretched makeshift cables made of simple iron wires across the valley. An infernal zip line, nearly 400 meters long, 200 meters above the ground. We also share the daily life of a vachero, a truck driver who transports cows from the Amazon basin to La Paz, the highest metropolis in the world. 25 hours of journey on the road to death, done without stopping. Because you have to go very quickly: if a cow dies, the driver pays.

  • Deadliest Journeys - Vietnam: The Geniuses Of Mekong

    50:40

    In the North West of Vietnam, the Quan Hoa mountains. It is one of the poorest and most isolated regions of Vietnam. Here, the majority of peasants survive on less than a dollar a day. However, this province has an inexhaustible wealth, bamboo ... Vietnam's green gold. Some of these bamboos are transported by raft ... A makeshift boat, assembled in a few hours, sets off on the Luong river, to join the Song Ma, Vietnam's third largest river. This region is also the only one in the country where the roads are not all paved. During the rainy season, which lasts almost three months, part of the trade is paralyzed. Even 4x4s or trucks quickly give up taking them… The only machine capable of traveling on these tracks, the “Tuk Tuk”. But in Vietnam, the king of transport is the motorcycle. It's almost a religion. In the country there are more than 40 million motorcycles.

  • Deadliest Journeys - Myanmar: No Fear

    51:23

    For more than half a century, the country has lived in isolation, cut off from the outside world by a succession of some of the toughest dictatorships on the planet. The Burmese regard their country as a beautiful sleeping girl. Today she opens her eyes a little but wakes him up hard. The country lacks everything, the infrastructure has been neglected for many years. But the Burmese keep smiling. In the North West, in the most mountainous region of the country, getting around is an adventure. The mountains reach 3000 meters in altitude and some roads climb to more than 2000 meters. With his truck, twice his age, Khampi struggles. Despite everything, man faces the roads or rather the tracks, with courage and coolness. Khampi never gets angry, he keeps a smile at all times even when he misses to tip over. The word “fear” seems to have disappeared from his vocabulary. The state of the roads is a serious handicap for the populations, but it has enabled the country to retain its beauty, its authenticity and its traditions. Young Sokna carries on an ancient ritual, the Kiss of Death. Legend has it that by kissing the head of a king cobra three times, the women of the village will quickly become pregnant. In Naypeedaw, the megalomaniacal capital erected by the military junta, highways hold a sad record. One of the least frequented on the planet. The country also holds another record, with the most terrifying train in Asia. It crosses a viaduct more than 100 meters high. Without any security. Barely a few centimeters separate the travelers from the void. Travel to the heart of Burma far from the tourist trails. Réalisateur 1

  • Deadliest Journeys - Bolivia in the heart of the flood

    52:29

    In the steaming undergrowth of the Bolivian jungle a family collects the rotting husks from giant almond trees. With their bare hands they extract the nuts that contain the almonds exported to gourmet stores throughout the world. Edgar has to transport them in his old truck to a processing plant as fast as he can. Like him, Ramiro carries another of the riches plundered from the forest: timber. The road could be a healthy jaunt, but in Bolivia the continuing slaughter of the forest is upsetting the ecosystem and creating unprecedented imbalances in the climate. Exceptional rainfall surprises the two drivers and the rivers of Amazonia flood millions of hectares. The main road to the capital, La Paz, is under water. Within a few days the country is cut in two and more than 100,000 people are affected. Hostages to landslides and the fury of the waters, the journey of the two men, as they struggle to save their livelihood and their trucks, turns into an incredible torment in the heart of the flood.

  • Deadliest Journeys - Borneo: The Jungle Convoy

    Borneo has one of the last primary forests in Southeast Asia. A treasure that makes the fortune of forestry operations. Loggers and drivers come from all over Indonesia to seek the best wages in the country, slaughtering with all their might. Dangerous work carried out under extreme conditions. Massive deforestation has disfigured the region to the point of endangering the wildlife and indigenous peoples who live there. Borneo, the fourth largest island in the world, has become the symbol of this unequal struggle against the big companies which exploit its wealth to the detriment of its inhabitants, its fauna and its flora.

  • Deadliest Journeys - Ethiopia

    51:24

    Ethiopia is among the hardest-hit countries in terms of deadly traffic accidents. Trains and trucks circulate along infrastructure from another age. For trucks in the south of the country, the transport of goods and people take place in the rain and on slippery roads… There is, however, no alternative, as flying is too expensive and the trains are no longer in working condition, except one. This one train travels through half of the country, from the city of Dire Dawa to the border at Djibouti. It travels 310 kilometres over the course of more than 10 hours – on a good day. This last known working train is no stranger to derailments and breaks down on a regular basis. It is the oldest but also the most dangerous train in the world! From the Danakil desert to the rainy summits of the Kaffa region, welcome to Ethiopia!

    Tajikistan is the poorest country in Central Asia. To travel through this region made up of 93% of mountains, you have to take the Pamir Highway, the second highest highway in the world. A mythical road built by the Soviets to open up the Pamir region and subject it to the rule of the Empire. A daring journey suspended between earth and sky on what the Tajiks call the “roof of the world”. But since the Russians left in 1991, the road has not been maintained. The Pamir Highway is the route of all dangers: Rock falls, landslides, fords ... 900 kilometers on the side of the ravine. Mechanics and people are put to the test, especially in winter when extreme temperatures freeze the engines. Gheyrat, the hero of this adventure, must improvise with the means at hand to deliver his goods and above all stay alive.

Sixty-six years later, Eddie Bauer mountain guides Adrian Ballinger and Carla Perez aim to summit the 8611-meter peak and join a community of explorers fewer in number than those who have been to outer space. Even more incredible, they both will attempt the feat without the use of supplemental oxygen. Every step of the way the team faces hazardous conditions, terrifying setbacks, and crushing misfortunes. But as Ballinger puts it, “I'll go until the mountain tells me I can’t go anymore.”

  • They risk their lives in Peru - One of the worlds most dangerous ways to school

    48:05

    Lake Titicaca is the largest lake in South America and the highest navigable body of water. Here Bolivia and Peru meet. According to legends, the Incan civilization originated on its banks. A magical place, but today only the many temple ruins in the region give attest to the once high culture of the past.

    What is left are the Uro; an ancient people, described at times as the only decedents of the Incas. They are the people of the floating islands, a very small community of about 2000 with a community consisting of fifty swimming islands. Every day from the furthest corners, the youngest inhabitants paddle their way in their small boats to school.

    Ronald lives on one of the furthest island from school. His school way takes him every day around three hours of paddling on the lake full of fish. The lake with its wealth of fish and seafood, delivers the dietary basis of the Islanders, while the school offers the children hope for future.

    World's Most Dangerous Roads: Deadliest Journeys in (2009)

    Deadliest Roads - East Timor:

    A lifeline for the numerous villages in the region, the Duong Valley road is the only link between China, Burma, and Tibet. The film crew joins locals (and a very special pig!), aboard a collective taxi to explore the region. Things start well enough; for the first 30 km, the road is paved. However, the tarmac quickly gives way to a dirt track, perched on the side of a vertiginous ravine. Landslides punctuate the drivers’ progress, and passengers frequently have to get out and dig. It’s a bumpy ride, and the pig has to be moved from his precarious position on the roof of the vehicle to join the human passengers inside.

    The drivers are fearless, ready to risk life and limb to complete their journeys. We encounter a crowd waiting at the entrance of an unfinished tunnel. The roof has collapsed, and the lorries cannot get through. The travelers work for long hours inhaling dust and carbon monoxide, hoping that the vibrations from the engines will not cause the tunnel to collapse on their heads.

    High up the hills, woodcutters fell the trees to make carbon, before embarking upon a back-breaking hike to the roadside where they will sell their wares. To reach their destination they must swing across a 50-meter river on a make-shift flying fox, their heavy cargo in tow. Further along, a Buddhist monk loads heavy stones on the back of a geriatric pickup truck, and an entrepreneur gambles his savings on a lead mine. The stories of the Duong Valley’s intrepid inhabitants interweave with the drama of its beautiful but unpredictable landscape.

  • Deadliest Roads | The Himalayas | Free Documentary

    44:54

    The Leh–Manali Highway is a 429 km (267 mi) long highway in northernmost India connecting Leh, the capital of the union territory of Ladakh, to Manali in the state of Himachal Pradesh. It connects the Manali Solang valley to the Lahaul and Spiti valleys in Himachal Pradesh and the Zanskar valley in Ladakh. It is open for only about five months in a year, from mid-May or June (when the snow is cleared from the highway) to October, when snowfall again blocks the high passes on the highway. However, the Lahaul valley will now remain connected to Manali for most part of the year through Atal tunnel.

    The Leh–Manali Highway has been designed, built and being maintained by the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) of the Indian army. It supports the heaviest army vehicles.
    The average elevation of Leh-Manali highway is more than 4,000 m (13,000 feet)[1] and its highest elevation is 5,328 m (17,480 ft) at the Taglang La mountain pass. It is flanked by mountain ranges on both sides, featuring stunning sand and rock natural formations.

    The road between Leh-Manali in Ladakh.
    The highway crosses many small streams of ice-cold water from snow-capped mountains and glacial melts without a bridge and it requires driving skill to negotiate fast-flowing streams. The landscape changes immediately after getting past the Atal tunnel and the greenery starts receding upon entering the Chandra river valley in the Lahaul region that lies in the rain-shadow. After crossing Darcha, the greenery completely disappears and the mountain slopes on the leeward side become brown and arid. However, the mountain peaks are covered in snow and shine brightly in the sun.
    The Leh-Manali highway is generally two lanes wide (one lane in each direction) without a road divider, but has only one or one and a half lanes at some stretches. It has over a dozen Bailey bridges and many of them are now being upgraded to two-lane steel bridges.. The highway has many damaged stretches and under-maintained portions, where even a little rainfall can trigger dangerous landslides. The road quality is poor from Zingzingbar to Pang and high speed can cause discomfort.

    Hundreds of miners scale a drop of over 2000 metres to get to the centre of the volcano, where they gather sulphur. They load as much as 80kilos onto their backs - like donkeys - before a back-breaking trek back up the volcano. They cover their mouths with scarves to try and protect themselves against the deeply toxic fumes which burn the lungs and eyes. The men are paid according to the weight of the sulphur they harvest. Two 80 kilo deliveries are possible over 11 hours. The pay: a salary of 8 euros.

  • 14 Roads You Would Never Want to Drive On

    10:31

    Some people love riding a roller coaster. The feeling of “having their heart in their mouth” makes them thrilled and high on adrenaline. But have you heard of the ways which go through the clouds?
    Today, let’s visit the most incredible and dangerous roads in the world. They overshadow even the coolest rides and leave people driving on them breathless and terrified.

    TIMESTAMPS
    Guoliang Tunnel, China 0:36
    Maeklong Railway Market, Thailand 1:22
    Yungas Road, Bolivia 1:58
    Eyre Highway, Australia 2:47
    The “Nose of the Devil” Railway, Ecuador 3:23
    Pamban Railway Bridge, India 3:57
    Karakoram Highway, Pakistan - China 4:35
    Passage de Gois, France 5:12
    Leh-Manali Highway, India 5:51
    Tianmen Mountain Road, China 6:24
    Road through Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia 6:53
    Road through Skippers Canyon, New Zealand 7:34
    The James W. Dalton Highway, Alaska, USA 8:22
    “Train to the Clouds”, Argentina 9:21

    SUMMARY
    - The Guoliang Tunnel is an amazing 0,7 mi (1.2 km) long mountain road in China. The story of its creation is unbelievable! Before its construction there had been a very dangerous path with narrow steep stairs which didn’t have any handrails.
    - The sellers take their goods away and fold their tents in seconds, giving way to the train which moves at a speed of about 9 mi/h (15 km/h). This is the reason the market is sometimes called Talat Rom Hoop which means “Market Umbrella Close”.
    - Yungas Road (also called Death Road) connects Bolivian cities of La Paz and Coroico. It descends from the height of 2 miles to 1,181 ft (3,300 to 360 m) above sea level. Despite the fact that the road is very narrow, even trucks manage to pass each other.
    - If you look at this highway, you will surely ask, “So what is so dangerous on this straight road?” Right, this is the longest straight road in the world with the length of about 994 miles (1,600 km)!
    - The “Nose of the Devil” railway is built on the rock which has the same name. It was called this way because people believed that Devil didn’t want a railway to pass through that place - that’s why so many deaths occurred among the people who built the road.
    - Pamban is India’s first sea bridge built in 1914. It connects the mainland part of India with the island which has the same name. In 1964 there was a storm which hit the island. It overturned a passenger train and all 150 people who were inside died.
    - At 807,7 miles (1,300 km) long, Karakoram is considered the world’s most high-altitude international highway. One of its sections passes at the altitude of more than 15,091 ft (4,600 m).
    - This is the road between the island of Noirmoutier and mainland France. This passage seems quite common, doesn’t it? It is, until you get to know that to drive along it, you will need to know the schedule of the tides! In fact, the road is approachable only twice a day - before and right after the low tide.
    - Leh-Manali Highway runs through several high mountain passes. It is located at the altitude of 13,034 to 16,404 ft (4 to 5 km). This road is extremely narrow, covered with dirt and gravel, but this doesn’t prevent local drivers from zooming through at high speeds.
    - This road leads to the top of Tianmen Mountain where a Buddhist temple is situated. It is only 6.8 miles (11 km) long but it can boast 99 bends with the distance between some of the curves less than 656 ft (200 m)!
    - The highway which runs through the dried Solar de Uyuni is located at the altitude of 11,811 ft (3,650 m) above sea level. Local landscapes are so unusual that they can be taken for some extraterrestrial grounds!
    - This road was built in 1880s and it is a true wonder of engineering. The construction took only 5 years and it has remained mostly unchanged since then! This amazing passage has numerous holes, cliffs, steep descents and sharp bends.
    - Only 108,7 miles (175 km) of this 413,8 miles (666 km) highway are covered with bitumen, the rest of the way you have to drive on gravel. Tough weather conditions, winds, unexpected changes from 2 to 4 lanes and back, poor visibility have made this road particularly deadly.
    - If you decide to make a 15-hour train journey, be ready to pass through 21 tunnels, 42 bridges and viaducts, 2 spirals and 2 more zigzags on the 134,8 mi (217 km) road! This railway is one of the highest in the world, its top point (at the end of the line) is situated at the altitude of 13,780 ft (4,200 km).

    Visit Peru Travel Guide | Best things to do in Perú:

    So we're off the train and this marks the start of the Inca Trail.

    So I guess we should explain that we aren't doing the traditional Inca trail. Normally you can do a four day walk or a 10 day walk. We're actually only doing a two day walk. We're not really lazy it is just kind of how it happened. Come on we are. Maybe, maybe just a little bit. We crave our comfort. So basically we're going to be hiking for a full day and then we're going to get to our Aguas Calientes and stay in a hotel. We're not staying in tents. And then the following day we'll be touring Machu Picchu with a guide and like learning the history of the place. So I guess really it is only one day walking the Inca Trail but we're going to say two to feel a little better about ourselves.

    So within five minutes of walking we've already reached our first Inca site.

    Machu Picchu! Machu Picchu! We made it. How are you feeling? I know. After that long hike. It is amazing. And we're so lucky to have views like this because apparently it was raining for three days before we did this hike. I know. And we have sunshine and blue skies and the lost city is waiting for us. Just over there.

    Going for the Llama selfie.

    We're going to be trying some traditional food from Cusco.

    So we are taking a really fun overnight trip from Puno today to visit Lake Titicaca. Yeah, we're going to visit several islands and do a homestay overnight. Yeah, and we'll get to meet the different communities that live here because we have Aymara people and Quechua people.

    Many travelers to Peru tend to skip over Lima as they rush off to more scenic destinations, but we’re of the opinion that the capital has a lot to offer. As one of the largest cities in South America, Lima can be a little chaotic and crowded, but it is also full of surprises, especially in terms of culinary experiences and historic attractions. In this travel video guide, we’re going to take you on a tour of the city and show you 30 things to do in Lima, Peru. Now let’s get started!

    After spending some time in Lima, we flew into Iquitos for the final leg of our Peruvian adventure. The landscape changed from arid deserts to mountains and finally to jungle as our flight crossed the country, and once we arrived, the first thing we did was hop into a tuk-tuk to take us into the city.

    So we have made it to Iquitos.

    Hello from the shores of the Amazon river. This is a pretty cool place to be wouldn't you say? Yeah, this is a bucketlist item for us definitely. So we are currently cruising down the Amazon with Rainforest Cruises. We're going to be spending four days and three nights aboard the Delfin number one.

  • Worlds Most Dangerous Roads - Benin: Blood Cotton

    49:41

    In northern Benin, each year from October to January, DRAMANE and ZACHARI, drivers of rattling trucks survive only to the rhythm of the cotton harvest. Like them, hundreds of drivers are trying to profit from this white gold which represents nearly 40% of BENIN's exports to rich countries. But in this very poor country, the cultivation of cotton dramatically impoverishes the soils of the countryside ... Because the immaculate flower requires astronomical quantities of water to grow ... water which in Benin is sorely lacking for the inhabitants who walk for kilometers on foot to find some ... In this painful context, ZACHARI fights to load the meager cotton crops with a rolling wreck ... DRAMAN he is seven days a week stuck behind the wheel of a huge truck, a TITAN. He rushes to the ground, ignoring the pedestrians to deliver the port of COTONOU as quickly as possible. Even if his meager salary forces him to live on a small business, he is not the most miserable like those they meet on the road: The farmers and their children who work only to survive, the women who break stones under the blazing sun or the dockworkers who are paid twenty cents to carry a 200 kilogram bale of cotton.

  • Worlds Most Dangerous Roads - Philippines

    51:58

    The headhunters road Kalinga in filipino is aptly named even if the region's heads haven't been rolling for a long time. It said the spirits of the mountains still have a taste for them when it comes to cutting the road.
    Christopher and his men face the same struggle against the mountain every day. Their job is to remove the thousands of cubic meters of rocks blocking the road in record time.
    Further down the valley lies the town of Bontoc. It is neither Airport nor railway station, so the road is vital for its 15,000 inhabitants. If the Kalinga is blocked, the entire region is paralyzed and even the bone snake charms are powerless.
    Bus 532 with 20 years of service is about to leave for one of the most dangerous roads in the Philippines: the Kalinga on the island of Luzon. It relays Bontoc to the regional capital of Tabuk to the north through the Cordillera mountains. A Tough road under construction for nearly a century, but which still resembles a track. It takes almost a day if all goes well to travel.

    Barely half a million people. To get from one village to another, you don't take the road but the river ... and its capricious streams. Suriname has another name: Dutch Guyana. Before 1975 it was a Dutch colony with its slaves. Their descendants are still there, they work for the gold diggers.

    Twitter:

    Southeast Asia at its best. 85% of the country is untouched nature, widespread forests, steep mountains and wide river valleys, but also cool high plateaus and savannahs. The primeval forests support a fauna like something out of a fairy tale, with elephants, tigers, leopards, and some of the rarest animal species on the planet. Species never seen by humans are discovered at regular intervals. In recent decades, the few large mammals to be described for the first time were all found in Indochina and experts assume that most of them are at home in Laos: wild oxen such as the saola and kuprey or the truong son munjak. No outsider has ever seen a living specimen of the latter; its existence is only known indirectly, through skeletons, horns and bag that are occasionally found in remote villages. And there is the Mekong, one of the last untamed rivers on Earth. Fed by hundreds of tributaries, it is one of the richest freshwater systems on the planet, comparable only with the Congo or Amazon. This is where the Mekong catfish lives. At 3 meters long and weighing in at 300 kilograms, this monster must be the largest freshwater fish on earth.

  • Peru | Amazon & Machu Picchu | Travel Video

    9:49

    In 1980, my dad traveled to Peru as part of a scientific research mission in the Amazon. The destination was so remote logistics required an overland and water route, and most of his gear and belongings were stolen as they crossed the Andes. After only a short stay he and his fellow researcher were captured by an unfriendly native tribe whose intent was to kill them. After a local Peruvian negotiated for their lives, my dad was turned over to the Peruvian army where they were held for two weeks for their protection but also under suspicion that he and his expedition leader were CIA. It was a time of political unrest in Peru and the beginning of the war with the Shining Path. Fortunately, he was ultimately released and walked away with his life (and a number of parasites).

    Despite the dangers he experienced there as a young man, the beauty of Peru stuck with him throughout his life. I heard many stories of Peru as a child, and of his plans to show it to me someday. In September of 2018, 38 years after his original visit, he finally returned with his wife, son, and daughter-in-law to a different and friendlier Peru. This video is a collection of moments to remember from our trip together by. It's safe to say it was more successful and enjoyable than his first visit!

    Some of our stops and activities included:
    - Lima - We first arrived in Lima and spent a day exploring the beautiful Miraflores district.
    - Iquitos - Here we met the boat that took us upriver to the Muyuna Lodge. We stayed there for three days and enjoyed many experiences including observing pink river dolphins, swimming in the Amazon River, night excursions by boat and by foot to observe wildlife, bird watching, visiting a local village, and more!

    - Cusco - We explored downtown Cusco, Saqsaywaman, and traveled through the Sacred Valley to Aguascalientes and Machu Picchu.
    - Peru Rail - We took a train from Cusco through the Andes to Puno, where we spent a day on Lake Titicaca, the Uros Floating Islands, and Taquile Island before returning home.
