Also known as the Death Road, this Bolivian road is one of the most dangerous roads in the world. Due to the foggy weather and unexpected turns, nearly 300 drivers were killed there every year until 1994. ‘Death Road’ ...apt nickname, huh!

View from these roads is breathtakingly beautiful, but oftentimes the roads are dangerously narrow, with poorly maintained guardrails, and steep drop-offs into the ocean. Breathtaking, indeed.

Guoliang Tunnel

The tunnel is of about 1.2 kilometers in length and 4 meters in width with several menacing open edges along the way. It rightfully demands your utmost focus while driving, otherwise you might end up in a hospital, or worse.

This Norwegian road looks like a humongous snake coiled around an enormous mountain. Intermittent rockfall incidences, bad weather conditions, and 11 precarious hairpin bends make your journey on this road stupendously unsafe.

Allegedly, 6 million kilograms of dynamite was used in this road’s construction and almost 40 people lost their lives while constructing it. If you’re a novice driver, just avoid this winding road that climbs to an altitude of 2,042 meters and has steep hairpin turns, long S-turns and sharp descents.

An architectural masterpiece, this is one scenically alluring and menacingly hazardous road in Norway. If visited during severe weather conditions, the thunderous showering of wind waves makes for a free car wash of salty water.

Spanned over 11 kilometers from the bottom (200m) to the top (1300m) of the Tianmen Mountain, this road is dotted with 99 deadly curves and turns. If you are thinking about whether to drive on this road or not, do yourself a favor, just don’t!
