The 10 Extremely Dangerous Roads in the World
It is very relaxing a slow ride through the countryside. These roads are nice because of the absence of fast cars. Apart from the quiet countryside roads, there are the most dangerous roads that make every driver crazy. It’s hard to compare driving on dangerous roads to anything else. Some of them are hand-built, others are completely hidden by water or rocks.
We at Trip city adventure made a list of 10 of the most dangerous roads in the world that is better to avoid.
This road is located in the Carpathian Mountains and pierces the Făgăraș massif. It reaches a 2034-meter height and is the tallest road in Romania. Transfăgărășan is known for its gorgeous sights and its danger.
Dalton Highway, Alaska
Dalton Highway is the most isolated highway in the world. It is 666 km long, and only connects 3 small villages. This road is considered the snowiest highway in the world.
Khardung La, India
According to officials, this road is 5602 meters tall (practically taller than Mount Elbrus). Guinness World Records and National Geographic recognized Khardung La as the tallest pass road in the world.
Atlantic Ocean Road, Norway
Atlantic Ocean Road connects small, coastal villages. By the way, this road is really meant for tourists, because the sights there are breathtaking.
Guoliang Tunnel, China
Guoliang Tunnel was built by the locals. A road cut out of the mountain was the only way of communication between the village and the outside world. Later, the government built a 1200-meter tunnel to help the locals with transportation.
Le Passage du Gois, France
Weirdly enough, this road is only open for a few hours every day. The road is hidden underwater for the rest of the day. Before entering the 4.5 km highway, read the schedule of tides. Otherwise, your car will simply sink.
Tianmen Mountain road, China
This road is 10 km long. It has 99 steep turns, and the difference in height between its beginning and its end is about 1,000 meters. Drivers here definitely need nerves of steel.
Col de la Bonette, France
This dangerous mountain pass is located on a 2000-meter height in the French Alps, right by the Italian border. This road has steep and unexpected turns.
Eshima Ohashi bridge, Japan
Although it is just a bridge, it is as dangerous as the roads we mentioned above. The bridge connects Sakaiminato and Matsue. It is about 1.7 km long, and 11.3 meters wide. From the far, the bridge seems impossible to climb. This height allows large ships to pass underneath.
