#1 The Guoliang Tunnel (China)
At more than 1,800 meters high, this tunnel is one of the most visited sites in China. It is barely twelve feet wide and unreinforced. The inhabitants of the area built it after 5 years of work and without engineering knowledge, the views are incredible and it is dug out of the rock.
#2 The Stelvio Pass (Italian Alps)
24 kilometers with an average unevenness of 7.5%. It is the highest paved mountain pass in the Eastern Alps, impressive.
#3 Transfagarasan (Romania)
It connects the historical regions of Transylvania and Wallachia along 90 kilometers full of extremely dangerous curves.
#4 Pikes Peak (USA)
Also called “The Race to the Clouds”, there are 20 kilometers with 156 curves that run through the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. With an average inclination of 7%, it starts at an altitude of 1,440 meters and ends… at 4,300!

Prisoners from Paraguay were in charge of building this road that connects La Paz with the Yungas region, in the Amazon jungle. In 1995 it was named the most dangerous highway in the world by the Inter-American Development Bank.

11 kilometers and 99 curves make up this spectacular route that is part of the National Park of China. It has a natural hole in the mountain itself and the budget for its construction was 13 million dollars.

The Andes mountain range is the setting for this impressive road with sections so twisted that the inhabitants call one “Los Caracoles”.

This ancient Cherokee trail runs between North Carolina and Tennessee. Among its 318 curves, one called “El Látigo” stands out. If you overcome it without difficulties, blind curves and slope changes await you…

We return to Scandinavia to end this dangerous Nordic path. With 11 180 degree curves, this road opened in 1936 provides spectacular views of the mountain until you reach the top, from where you can see the famous Stigfossen waterfall… if you arrive safely.
