Most Dangerous Road in the World?

Most Dangerous Road in the World?

Do you like to take risks? Do you like to travel hard?
Do you enjoy crossing dangerous roads?

If the answer to these questions is yes, let us ask you another question. Have you traveled on the most dangerous roads in the world? If not, let's take you on the most difficult road trip in the world.

Without roads our cars would not know where to go, so all the petrolheadsof the world have a lot to thank the romans for. But some roads haven’t exactly aged well, and many of them weren’t exactly “all that safe” to begin with. As a result of that, and a lack of funding for renovation, there are an awful lot of roads in the world that only a madman would be willing to drive down. These are the world’s most dangerous roads that actually exist!

world's Most Dangerous Roads : Deadliest Journeys in India in 2020

Benares, India’s holiest town, is the final destination for millions of pilgrims. They come from all over the country, making the difficult, dangerous journey to bath in the sacred River Ganges. For some, this will be the last journey they ever make. According to Hindu mythology, the souls of bodies cremated here will avoid the cycles of reincarnation and go directly to paradise. Every day, hundreds of corpses are brought here by their families to be cremated on funeral pyres. Thousands of tons of coal and wood are needed to keep the fires burning and a busy ‘coal-route’ has developed.

Top 20 Most Dangerous Roads In The World You Won't Believe Exist

While you are sweating to travel just on a dirt road, there are also bunches of roadways which will give you goose bumps. Based on constructions, road conditions and road safety we came up with 20 most dangerous roads in the world where you need to carry your heart in hand while crossing. The following are in no particular order and the list is far from exhaustive.

1. Karakoram Highway
Connecting China to Pakistan, the “Friendship Highway” is actually not friendly at all. Its 16,000 feet in the air, meaning altitude sickness is a serious issue for anyone braving its sharp turns. 

2. Yungas Road, Bolivia
Generally thought of as the most dangerous ring road in the world. The winding 40 mile road from La Paz to Coroico is mostly single lane, with massive ascents and quick descents. 

3. Highway 101, Mexico
Highway 101 connects Matamoros which is just south of Brownsville, Texas to Ciudad Victoria and beyond. It’s not inherently dangerous, as it’s well paved and fairly straight. 

4. Trans-Siberian Highway, Russia
Connecting Vladivostok in the east to St. Petersburg to the west, Russia’s Trans-Siberian Highway is one of the longest in the world. 

5. Kabul Jalalabad, Afghanistan
This is one of the most terrifying roads anywhere in the world. Also humanitarian reasons, one of the most important.

6. Ruta 5, Chile
Runs from the Peruvian border to Puerto Montt and connects via ferry to Chiloé Island. Despite built modern and well paved by the construction companies, it’s notoriously dangerous.

7. Zojila Pass, India
If you want to pick a remote road to get killed on, this winding mountain pass has it all. 

8. The Barton Highway, Australia
Connecting Canberra to Yass, the Barton Highway is generally thought to be the worst and most dangerous major road.

9. Taroko Gorge Road, Taiwan
Probably the most dangerous route. This narrow mountain road offers spectacular views. Depending on the weather, a pretty good chance of dying. 

10. Highway 550, Colorado
Known as the “Million Dollar Highway” is also one of the most dangerous in America. 

11. Highway 2, Montana
Leading to Glacier National Park, Highway 2 is a beautiful and picturesque piece of driving. It’s also the deadliest highway in America. 

12. James Dalton Highway, Alaska
Remote, isolated and virtually guaranteed to kill you if you break down, the 414 mile Dalton Highway was built to support oil exploration. There are just three towns along it, with a total population of 60 people.

13. Sichuan Tibet Highway, China
With China embracing car culture, it’s also seen a skyrocketing increase in car accident deaths between 1985 and 2005. 

14. Fairy Meadows, Pakistan
You’d think with a cheerful name like “Way to Fairy Meadows,” this road would be a nonstop carnival of fun and charm. It’s not.

15. Halsema Highway, Philippines
Want to take your life in your hands? Look at the northern mountain road with insane drops and rises.

16. Skippers Canyon Road, New Zealand
A remote gold mining route is so dangerous that you have to apply for a permit before even attempting to drive on it. 

17. Canning Stock Route, Australia
Perhaps the world’s most remote and isolated road with 1,150 miles of empty, scorching desert in Western Australia.

18. Trollstigen, Norway
Known as the “Troll’s Path” is so windy and dangerous that you probably need to be a mythical creature to survive it. 

19. Route 138, California
Cheerfully known as “Blood Alley” or the “Death Trap Highway,” the Pear blossom Highway runs a terrifying body count. 

20. Pan-American Highway, Alaska to Argentina
