2. North Yungas Road, Bolivia
To one side is solid rock. To the other, a 2,000-foot abyss. In between is a two-way, 12-foot-wide path known as “Death Road.”
Regularly named as the world’s most dangerous route, North Yungas Road was cut into the side of the Cordillera Oriental Mountain chain in the 1930s. Many sections are unpaved and lack guardrails. Warm and humid winds from the Amazon bring heavy rains and fog. There are numerous mudslides and tumbling rocks, and small waterfalls occasionally rain down the cliff sides. Every year around 300 to 400 people lose their lives due to the death road or you may say North Yungas Road.
3. Jalalabad–Kabul Road, Afghanistan
Kabul-Jalalabad Highway is a section of A01 national highway, with a length of 143km,linking Kabul and Jalalabad, Afghanistan.
Kabul Gorge or locally known as Tang-i-Gharoo which led to the Darae Maiee- Par (Flying Fish Valley).
The road is meant for testing your stamina and skills because of its twists and turns. The road passes through extreme mountains. Here cars can slip, buses can collide, and Trucks can lead to a great damage resulting in paying lives of an individual. It was made for the first time by the West German government in 1960.
4. James Dalton Highway, Alaska
It was built in 1974. It is 414 miles between the Elliot Highway just north of the city of Fairbanks and Dead horse. The highway is parallel to the trans-Alaska pipeline system. There are only three villages or towns between the whole highways. Few rules are to be taken care of while driving to this road. Fuel is available only at three stops in between the highway, keep your headlights always on as others could be able to see it, don’t stop on the bridges or hills, and always keep a watch on the rear mirror. There is reason for the fatality rates on this road and they are poor visibility, bad conditions, and two to four lane changes.
