There is nothing more relaxing than a long drive on a quiet Saturday evening. But would you dare to drive on one of the world’s most dangerous roads? These wild roads around the world will get your adrenaline pumping, or at least give you a view like no other:
1. Caucasus Mountain Road, Russia
2. Gotthard Pass, Switzerland
3. Col de la Bonette, France
4. Kolyma Highway, Russia
Without a rail link to the city, the “Road of Bones” remains the only major land route into and out of Yakutsk.
5. Hana, Hawaii
This 64.4-mile road connects Kahului with the town of Hāna in Maui.
6. Dakhla Oasis, Egypt
7. Tianmen Mountain Road, China
8. Passage du Gois, France
This 2.7-mile-long causeway is passable for only a few hours a day. The rest of the time, it is submerged in the Atlantic by incoming tides.
9. Guoliang Tunnel, China
16. Karakoram Highway, Pakistan
The Karakoram Highway is the highest paved international road in the world. It connects China and Pakistan across the Karakoram mountain range, through the Khunjerab Pass, at an elevation of 4,693 metres.
