The 6 Craziest Roads In The World

From highways with the most beautiful views in the world to those that kill more than 300 people a year, these roads are absolutely nuts. (But I still wanna check them out.)

1. Dades Gorge Road, Morocco

ID: 11175

Located way up in the High Atlas Mountains at the edge of the Sahara Desert, the cleft features cliffs towering up to 1600 feet tall, with some of the roads going through fissures only 30 feet wide.

3. Passo dello Stelvio, Italy

ID: 11177

While Stelvio Pass is only the second highest paved mountain pass in the Alps at 9045 feet, its passages are much more precarious.

5. Guoliang Tunnel, China

ID: 11179

Only 16 feet tall and 13 feet wide, this 3/4-mile tunnel was built by villagers in 1972, desperate to connect their village to the world outside the Taihang Mountains. Many of the Guoliangers died during its five-year construction.

7. Yungas Road (Road of Death), Bolivia

ID: 11181

Once named the “world’s most dangerous road,” El Camino de la Muerte is a 38-mile long journey through the mountains, leading from La Paz to Coroico. It is estimated that 200-300 travelers yearly die while traversing it.

9. Atlanterhavsveien (Atlantic Ocean Road), Norway

ID: 11249

Despite looking menacing in bad weather conditions, Atlanterhavsveien is actually ranked as one of the best scenic roads in the world, with insane curves and epic vistas.

ID: 11241

11. Halsema Highway, Philippines

ID: 11243

The highest highway in all of the Philippines, the Halsema Highway takes about six hours to traverse. Despite its zigzag design, it has a relatively low number of deaths given its extreme altitudes, and looks fantastic.
