If you like to travel to remote or unpopular places, then there's a pretty good chance that you've explored some dangerous roads.

To travel there is a daring act. However, if you're one to travel to safer places, take a glimpse of a few of the most dangerous roads in the world.

The road begins in Chengdu of Sichuan on the east and ends at Lhasa in Tibet on the west. This trip is almost two weeks long! This elevated road has a number of majestic and sharp turns. Landslides and rock avalanches are just some of the difficulties you may face on this ride.

This treacherous road is located in Norway. It was named the Best Drive in 2006 by the Guardian. It is also home to the Storseisundet, famously known as the 'the bridge to nowhere.' Sometimes, waves from the Norwegian Sea can come up and crash over the road during bad weather conditions. You'll surely enjoy this one!


Zojila Pass

The only vital link between Ladakh and Kashmir, the Zojila Pass is one of the most treacherous roads in India. Even when the sun is shining, the drops are steep, the roads are narrow without any barriers. It is littered with overturned buses, crashed cars, and livestock. This high-altitude pass will make you experience it all, from heavy snowfall to high winds.


Skippers Canyon Road

Located in New Zealand, the Skippers Canyon Road is 16.5 miles long and was handcrafted by miners about 150 years ago. The drive is definitely worth it with the most beautiful views. There are many excellent photo opportunities, so make sure to click photos. From twisty hairpin turns, high elevations, steep grades, and winding and narrow roads, the Skippers Canyon is certainly a test of your ability.


Conclusion


Fairy Meadows Road, North Yungas Road, Bayburt D915, and Keylor Kishtwar Road are some of the honorable mentions. While they may seem fun and give you the adrenaline rush, they are actually dangerous. Avoid traveling here, and if you really want to, hire a professional driver with years of experience. After all, life is precious so don't waste it!
