7 of the Most Dangerous Roads in the World We use roads almost every day of our lives,
but there are some roads which will stay with you (potentially in your nightmares) if you
drive on them even once. So check out our list of the most dangerous
roads in the world. 7. Eshima Ohashi Bridge, Japan Located in Japan, the Eshima Ohashi Bridge
connects the cities of Matsue and Sakai-minato. We can only hope that residents of these two
cities get their brakes checked regularly, since the bridge has a gradient of 6.1 percent
on one side (and 5.1 percent on the other!). The reason for the steep curve is the fishing
boats which must pass underneath. At 144-feet (43m) tall, the actual incline
isn’t quite as steep as it comes off in photos. In fact, seen from its side angles, it can
actually look like a normal bridge. I guess that’s why drivers are willing to
give it a go day-in and day-out! 6. Karakoram Highway, Pakistan Karakoram Highway connects Pakistan and China
by passing through the Karakoram Mountain range. This bad boy is not only one of the highest
paved roads in the world (although on the Pakistan side it actually remains unpaved!),
this 745 mile (1200km) journey is an adventure in its own right. Built in the 60’s and 70’s (yeah, it took
a couple decades), the pass goes up to 15,400 ft (4,693 m) and was even dangerous while
it was being constructed – over 800 workers from Pakistan and over 80 from China lost
their lives during its construction. Now, the most serious dangers are landslides
and floods. Of course, avalanches and heavy snow aren’t
unheard of either. But, with incredible views, including brilliant
views of the renowned K2 Mountain, tourists continue to battle altitude sickness to make
the treacherous trip each year. 5. Yungas Road, Bolivia Commonly called “The Road of Death”, it
is difficult to imagine just why anyone would ever travel on Bolivia’s Yungas Road. At only 35 miles (56 km) long, the road connects
La Paz and Coroico . Yet, despite its short length, it was given its frightful nickname
after the Inter-American Development Bank claimed it was the world’s most dangerous
road back in 1995. The name doesn’t seem far from the truth,
with between 200 and 300 travellers on the road being killed in a given year, according
to a 2006 estimate. With an over 15,000 (4572 m) foot descent
(or ascent, depending on your route), the road is used by locals in cars and trucks,
and often considered a bucket-list trip for cyclists from overseas. 4. The Jalalabad-Kabul Highway, Afghanistan A part of a major highway system, the Grand
Trunk Road, this stretch of highway may have the highest claim on lives of them all. Yet the exact number of deaths is unknown
since “most people stopped counting a long time ago”, as reported by The Time’s Dexter
Filkins. At 95 miles (153 km) in length, it is not
the 1900 ft (600 m) high cliffs that cause deaths, but the reckless driving that causes
cars to spin off them. Of course, road conditions do not help the
situation – although paved when originally built in 1969, the road is now best described
as gravel. To put the danger of the road into perspective,
the words of a fabric shop owner near the highway ring loud and clear: “The fighting
with the Taliban lasts only for a day or two, but the crashes are every day.” 3. The Sichuan-Tibet Highway, China China’s Sichuan-Tibet Highway includes a
16,568 foot (5050m) high pass (and a narrow one at that), as well as incredible views
and the chance to see Tibetan villages nestled into the mountains. It’s the latter that keeps tourists travelling
the road despite its relative danger. At 1,330 miles (2,142 km) in length, the stretch
of highway usually takes at least 15 days to navigate (safely). While opened back in 1954, the number of deaths
on this road have increased sharply in recent years. For instance, deaths in 1985 were 3.9 per
100,000 and had already reached 7.6 per 100,000 in 2005. The sharp increase is likely due to the increase
in cars 2. The Leh-Manali Highway, India Open only during the summer months, the Leh-Manali
Highway spans 297 miles (478 km) of the Himalayan Mountains in India. With sparse access to resources and extremely
volatile weather, it is recommended to bring plenty of extra fuel and prepare for the worst
on this road. With mountain passes averaging over 17,000
feet (5100m), the road is actually well-maintained, since it holds a strategic place between China
and Pakistan. This means that the Indian Army’s Border
Roads Organization is in charge of the road’s upkeep – they make sure the snow is cleared
during the summer months, for instance. Despite their support, the road is known for
its serious traffic jams, difficult terrain, and – of course – plenty of landslides. Drivers on the road have remarked that seeing
the results of crashes a few hundred m down the cliff below them is a stark reminder to
drive at a crawl, averaging 9 to 12 mph (15 to 20 km) in some spots. 1. James Dalton Highway, Alaska, USA Built in 1974, Alaska’s James Dalton Highway
is 414 miles (666 km) of gravel in some of the most difficult conditions in the world. To begin with, the road only has three villages
(and therefore three places to fuel up) along its route, meaning that a jaunt on this road
will include just you, your (hopefully working) car, and the harsh wilderness of Alaska. With a high point of 4,739 feet (1444 m),
the road is also known for its ability to kick up huge amounts of gravel, mud and – worst
of all – dust, which reduce visibility to hazardous levels. As the road is a supply route for the Trans-Alaska
Pipeline System, drivers are warned to stay out of the way of the massive oil trucks that
pass along it. Still, tourists who crave adventure have called
this highway “the ultimate road trip”.

    What do you think about “one day traveling to space with a spacecraft “ and “one week traveling all around the world with an airplane and no landing at the flight period “!
    Which one is more dangerous???

    Absolutely one day out of the world, but why??? Because there is not any help there if …

    It is reason for #1 road in Alaska!

    The Dalton Highway in Alaska is NOT particularly dangerous. I drove it during the summer of 2016 in my Honda CR-V. It is gravel for a large part of the way, and there are only a couple of opportunities for gas in-between Fairbanks and the Prudhoe Bay Oil Fields, so plan your trip well. It would also be a good idea to take along TWO full-size spare tires. I also carried along an inReach satellite communicator in case of an emergency as you can be over a hundred miles from any kind of help and there is no cell coverage along the way.

    These robotic voices are sickening. Whatever happened to people. When I was a boy in the 1950's – 1960's we had a large building downtown with a huge telephone engraved into the side of the build it said ma bell. It was the local telephone company, but this is the clincher — when you called there, real human people answered the phone, and people looked up your number. Quite something. Man is becoming obsolete.

    The dangers on those scary high mountain roads could be cut in half if big trucks and long-body busses are banned from them. And make the roads one-way in each direction on alternate days, so that vehicles don't have to squeeze pass each other in opposite direction.
