There are some roads in the world that have been constructed in a way that invites danger. Others are hazardous because of tricky driving conditions. Some have high accident rates because of human error. Yet, all of them fall under the category of dangerous roads. Most of these roads should only be used by those who crave adventure. The rest of us should be doing all we can to avoid driving there.
1. Halsema Highway (Philippines):
Halsema Highway is located on the island of Luzon. It is famous for its landslides and rock falls. These can keep motorists stranded for long periods of time. Some parts of the road are still unpaved and there are guardrails missing in many portions. All of this combined with the extremely foggy conditions make driving pretty dangerous. Also locals reveal that the buses on this route do not have a knack for following traffic safety rules, so be careful if you are ever driving there.
2. San Isidro De General-Cartago (Costa Rica):
The road that links San Isidro de General with Cartago passes through the Costa Rican mountains. It is one of the most dangerous roads in the world. Its highest pass is called the Mountain of Death and stands at a height of 13,000 feet. You could suffer from altitude sickness. There are also narrow turns, potholes, steep curves and foggy conditions. To top it off, the bus and truck drivers traversing this route drive very rashly.
3. Patiopoulo-Perdikaki Road (Greece):
The road that is connecting Patiopoulo with Perdikaki is an unnerving one. It is full of steep and narrow turns, potholes and pedestrians and livestock. The gravel is loose and slippery. The most dangerous feature is that there are steep drop-offs on both sides of the road.
4. Grand Trunk Road (India):
The Grand Trunk road is also known as the GT road. It covers the whole of the subcontinent as it travels from Bangladesh all the way to Pakistan. It is a hazardous road for drivers because of the intense traffic congestion. The condition of the road is dilapidated and the height is a factor too. Yet, the single feature that makes it dangerous is the load of pedestrians, bicycles, cars and buses. You need to be very careful in driving over there.
5. Fairy Meadows Road (Pakistan):
The Fairy Meadows is situated at the foot of the famous Nanga Parbat Mountains. It is a popular spot for mountain climbers and photographers. The road to get there is not for the faint of heart. Read the full story
