In the final installment of the series, comedians Phill Jupitus and Marcus Brigstocke head to Bolivia for a high-altitude trip, first driving along the infamous 'Road of Death', only to find themselves deep in bandit country. Disorientation takes them by surprise as they have to navigate Salar de Uyuni - a salt lake so vast that Buzz Aldrin could see it from space. Their goal is the ancient mountain city of Potosi, whose silver mines financed the Spanish empire in the 16th century and which is almost 5,000 metres above sea level.
