World's Most Scariest Roads
North Yungas Road , Bolivia
also known as “ Road of Death ”— stretches for some 40 mountain-hugging miles, as narrow as 10 feet in spots and with 1,000-foot drops straight to a rainforest below.
Guoliang Tunnel Road , China
In 1972, villagers in a remote area of the Taihang Mountains chiseled a 3/4-mile-long tunnel through a mountain for access to the outside world. Today, the route 15 feet high and 12 feet wide is a tight squeeze for vehicles, twisting past the tunnel’s 30 “ windows ” , which provide views off the precipice to a tumbling abyss hundreds of feet below.
Halsema Highway, Philippines
Landslides are a hazard on the Halsema Highway, where big stones and debris tumble from peaks. And along with the cloud forests comes mist that can ruin visibility.
Tracing a circuitous path, this road crosses the massive Cordillera Central mountain range on the Island of Luzon, and many sections remain unpaved.
