Skippers Canyon Road, New Zealand
This narrow and winding road actually requires a special permit to drive. If you do manage to get permission, though, be ready for a slippery challenge and good luck if you run into someone coming from the other direction.
Halsema Highway, Philippines
The only way to get to Sagada, a popular tourist spot in the Philippines, is via the landslide-prone Halsema Highway. It is one of the most poorly maintained roads in the world, and every year, a bus or two will go rolling over its edge.
The Pasubio in northern Italy is famous for its incredible views. Driving can be a challenge, however, and isn’t even allowed after a certain point. Unfortunately, restricting vehicle access hasn’t stopped people from riding their bikes over the edge.
Taroko Gorge Road, Taiwan
Known as one of the most dangerous roads in Taiwan, the Taroko Gorge Road is full of blind curves, sharp turns, and narrow paths leading through cliffs and mountains.
Guoliang Tunnel Road, China
Although it may be hard to see in the photo, this road in China was hollowed out of the side of a mountain by several villagers from the town of Guoliang. Before the construction of this mountain pass, the village was cut off from the rest of civilization by the surrounding cliffs. Although it doesn’t see much traffic due to its construction, it is inherently dangerous.
