During the driving on hill stations, most of the drivers encounter difficult & unsafe road consitions. On such difficult & dangerous roads, hazards may appear suddenly, for example, bad weather, drunk drivers and any kind of simple human error make the journey bad. Sometimes, even the condition of the road can cause serious accidents. Its hard to count that how many dangerous roads are in the world. However, the studies tell us that there are around 100 most dangerous & scary roads in the world which are also the most famous ones. Below we are showing a list of top 10 most dangerous & scary roads in the world where hundreds of blood-bathing accidents have happened. Lets have a look…
Stelvio Pass Road, Italy
The eastern Alps countryside of Italy are incredibly breathtaking. This zig-zag stretch of road at 1.7 miles above sea level has approximately 48 hairpin bends. It’s beautiful to look at from a distance, but wouldn’t be easier to fly over the Alps to get to the other side?
Trollstigen translated means “Troll’s Ladder.” Dizzy hairpins, almost impossible to pass another car on this narrow road and then put the danger of falling rocks with steep inclines that leave you with a case of vertigo… why oh why drive here? Tourist are attracted by the beautiful 1000ft waterfall off the side of the mountain. You want to see a waterfall, fly to Hawaii. It’s safer and you can get a tan.
Col de Turini, France
Who doesn’t want to go to the south of France? About 20 miles on this pass is part of the Monte Carlo Rally with 34 death defying hairpins and long stretches where cars top our at over 100 miles per hour. It’s considered one of the greatest driving roads of the world, but not for normal people who embrace safety first.
North Yungas Road, Bolivia
This road is also known as the “Road of Death.” It’s a single-lane road, so why do these trucks try to pass each other are they nuts? It’s a long drop down without guardrails. There’s also fog and rain to contend with including mudslides caused by moisture.
Taroko Gorge Road, Taiwan (Chung Cheng)
A tunnel with no lights off a cliff equals a disaster waiting to happen. Tourist love it because it passes right through a national park. At least there’s a cement guard rail system.
Los Caracoles Pass, Andes
A very popular path through the Andreas Mountains between Chile and Argentina. A maze of steep inclines and hairpins without guard rails and the road is covered with snow for the most part of the year. Buy an airline ticket and fly back and forth between the two countries.
Lena Highway, Russia
Known as the “Highway from Hell.” This road runs parallel to the river Lena. During the winter it’s a breeze to drive through but during the summer month with a deluge of rain, it’s a mud pit.
Guoliang Tunnel Road, China
Yes, that’s a tunnel road inside a mountain 200 meter long about 5 meters high and 4 meters wide. A beautiful scenic route that’s dubbed, “the road that does not tolerate any mistakes.” Seriously!
Atlas Mountains Road, Morocco
The Dades Gorge in Morocco is beautiful to look at, but not while you’re driving this twisty-turvy road. You could end up being part of the Gorge.
The Way to Fairy Meadows, Pakistan
You know when they tell you not to look down when you’re scared of heights, don’t look down! No shoulder, no guard rail, no hope.
