The 15 Most Beautiful And Hazardous Roads In The World

Spread the word

There is nothing more relaxing than a country trip. These roads are beautiful due to the lack of many cars. But apart from the quiet streets of the province, there are hazardous roads that will make the coolest driver scare!

Some are poorly constructed, others are hiding in the water or between the rocks, but they all require great attention.

Fasten your seatbelts to take a look at the 15 most hazardous roads that we are worth finding:

1. Zoji La, India

Ladakh and Kashmir are connected to this 9 km long road. This road is extremely narrow, although it accommodates guides from both directions but also sheep and goats,

2. Transfagarasan, Romania

This road lies in the Carpathian Mountains and crosses the Făgăraş Mountains. It reaches a height of 2034 meters and is the tallest road in Romania. Transfagarasan Road is known for its amazing sights and its dangers.

3. Dalton Highway, Alaska

The Dalton Highway is the most isolated highway in the world. It has a length of 666 km, and connects only 3 small villages. This road is considered the most snow-capped motorway in the world.

4. Khardung La, India

According to official data, this road is 5602 meters (almost taller than Mount Elbrus). River Guinness and National Geographic recognize Khardung La as the world’s tallest passage.

5. Yungas Road, Bolivia

This highway is one of the most dangerous roads in the world. Kill 200-300 people a year. Steep mountains on one side, and a cliff on the other (about 600 meters high). It’s even terrifying thinking on this road!

6. Atlantic Ocean Road, Norway

The Atlantic Ocean Road connects small, seaside villages. This road is ideal for tourists because the attractions are breathtaking.

7. Guoliang Tunnel, China

The Guoliang Tunnel was built by the locals. A road through the mountain was the only channel of communication between the village and the outside world. Later, the government built a 1,200-meter-long tunnel to help locals in transport.

8. Le Passage du Gois, France

Surprisingly, this road remains open only for a few hours a day. The road remains hidden beneath the surface of the water for the rest of the day. Before you enter the road with a total length of 4.5 km, consult the tidal program. Otherwise, your car will sink into the water.

9. Tiananmen Mountain Road, China

This road has a length of 10 km. It has 99 sharp turns, and the difference in height at the beginning and end of the road is about 1,000 meters. Drivers here must have steel wires.

10. Hana, Hawaii

This 112km long road interconnects to Kahului and Hana, on Malawi Island, Hawaii. The narrow, helical road interconnects 59 bridges, of which 46 have a lane of traffic. The road often remains closed due to landslides.

11. Kolyma, Russia

The official title of the road linking Yakutsk and Magadan is Kolyma. However, most people call it the way of death. The first 90 km were built in 1932 by prisoners. Construction was completed in 1953.

12. Col de Bonette, France

This dangerous passage to the mountain is at a height of 2,000 meters in the French Alps, right next to the Italian border. This road has sudden and unexpected turns.

13. Gotthard Passage, Switzerland

One of the highest passes in the mountains of the Alps. A 64km long road passes through the mountain ranges and impresses passengers with its spectacle.

14. Caucasus Road, Russia

This narrow road links Sochi and Lake Ritsa through the mountains. It’s just as scary and impressive. It’s worth seeing it at least once.

15. Eshima Ohashi Bridge, Japan

Although it is only a bridge, it is as dangerous as the roads we mentioned. The bridge interconnects Sakaiminato and Matsue. It is about 1.7 km long and 11.3 inches wide. From afar, it seems impossible to climb the bridge. This height allows large ships to pass under the bridge.
