Beautiful Scenery Along The Deadly Road

I never get bored to write about place and travel destination. I hope you don’t get bored to read this hub. This time I write something different. When we go to the tourism place, we might to stop for a while or stay for a couple days. With the common reasons enjoying a beautiful of that place. If you like traveling we must need this thing. What you passed when you traveling in some places? The best answer is road.

Other question is what do we see along the trip? I thought the beautiful scenery. That makes our trip more comfortable and fun. How does God combine both of these? I mean by combining beautiful scenery along the road. This is not common road, but the deadly road. I hope you can imagine how these roads looks so scary for us. I thought not only for the driver, but the passenger also. Maybe I saw kind of these roads only in the movie. But this time we can enjoy the beautiful scenery along the deadly road through this hub.

You can see several deadly roads in the world have beautiful scenery. Personally, just see the pictures make me sweating. But I have to admit that the scenery is totally beautiful. Some of these roads passed the mountains, hills and even on the edge of ravine. So, if you have a chance to travel along these roads, just prepare to pump your adrenaline. Other scary experience when we passed these roads maybe when we ran into another vehicle. Where is the road we passing through was not enough to accommodate two cars or buses. I thought experienced driver required. Not everyone is brave enough to drive in these roads.This nature gives us all to be enjoyed. I thought some of us know these roads, because we live near these roads. Maybe you want to share your experience, I’ll appreciate that. Please enjoy the information below.


Trollstigen in Norway

Trollstigen or we can called this troll ladder is mountain road in Rauma, Norway. That is part of the national road of Norway which connects Andalsues in Rauma and Valldal in Norddal. This road is become a popular attraction for tourists because it has a 9% steepness and eleven sharp bend which climb the mountainside. Getting into the top this road is narrower with sharp turns. Although in recent years has been widened, the vehicle which length more than 12.4m are prohibited to passed this road.

At the peak, there is a parking space where the tourists can save their car, then from there they can walk for 10 minutes to the high place like a balcony. From these places they could see the road with all bend and they can also see Stigfossen waterfalls. The waterfall looks beautiful, when the water flowing down along the edge with the length around 320m along the mountainside. Wow....horrible experience redeemed with beautiful scenery. I thought it would be a great trip for many tourists which passed Trollstigen.

Guoliang Tunnel, the road inside a tunnel

When I see this road it reminds me with the Chinese movie, especially kung-fu movie. Why I said like this because the movie sometimes use the mountain background and the other the rock mountain. I also found the beautiful scenery in this road and this is like in the movie. This road located in Hunan province, China. What make this road so specials? because this road was built inside the tunnel in Taihang Mountain. The road in Taihang mountain was built by local people. Required five years to complete this tunnel with length around 1.200 metres, with a height of about 5m and 4m wide. Several people killed by accident during the making of this road. But other residents continue to remain to build until finish. This is like an art work, where the people make such of the beautiful creation and it useful for others. On May 1, 1977, the tunnel was opened for transportation. My advice don't look at down!

Stelvio causeway in Italy

I found another beautiful road. I heard that this road also good for cycling. If your hobbies are cycling, don’t miss this track. You will found beautiful scenery along the trip. And all the scenery for the left side and the right side are totally green. I thought it good for our eyes. This road is the highest mountain highway in the eastern Alps and the second highest road in the Alps after the Col de I'lsevon (2.770m). Stelvio causeway is also connect Valtellina area with the Adige valley and Merano. It is in the Italian Alps, near Bormio and Sulden, 75km from Bolzano, near the border with Switzerland. This road has 48 sharp bend, many people said that this is the best circuits in the Alps. Although this road not too deadly, but Stelvio stay could pumping your adrenaline. I thought my friend, Micky Dee will love this one.

The Most Dangerous Road in Bolivia

North Yungas Road, also known as the death road. This road stretching as far as 61 to 69 km from La Paz (Bolivia's capital) to the Coroico in the Amazon region in the Yungas region, Bolivia. In 1995 the Inter American Development Bank called this as "the most dangerous road in the world". It called like this because amount of 200-300 people were killed each year on the road. Along the way many of the cross standing as a mark many of the vehicles crashed.

At the end of 2006, after having built over 20 years, a new road (by-pass) from La Paz to Coroico opened to the public. A new road with modern construction like bridges, drainage, etc. We can also see double lines, sidewalks, security fencing and many other elements that make it much safer than old roads. But we can still find many people who want to felt the sensation of the dangerous road. For me, No thank when I see the picture below.

Taroko Gorge Road, Taiwan

This place is located in Taiwan. From the information around the internet this road also located in Taroko Gorge National Park, just a few hours from Taipei. We can see beautiful scenery created from the limestone. This limestone like sculpted in the narrow canyon. The waters coming out of the wild central mountain range in the island of Taiwan. I don't have any word to describe, because of beautiful marble canyon, deep valley and the high cliff. Because of this road is quite narrow, only the bus can pass this road. The road through the gorge, make this place so amazing. This is absolutely beautiful sight to see.

Thanks for refreshing our eyes, prasetio. Funny, I've written a hub on this: World's Scariest Roads, but you've made a beautiful twist on the topic. Instead of noticing the roads, you've diverted our eyes to the beautiful sceneries, along the way.

You're right, we need a little courage to pass these roads. Rated it up!

Woah! Very brave travelers take buses on these roads. I am sure I have dreamed about being on roads like this. Having to get to a place on such a risky road, do some task, then come back on the same road. Scary. Thank you so much for puting this together, I can tell it took a lot of time and work. :0)

Hi, prasetio, fantastic hub, and so scary! what beautiful views, and the roads look so narrow and unreal! I have a couple of stories about this sort of thing, first I went to Kos in Greece, and the road was long and right on the edge of the cliffs like your pictures above, I was in a bus! and I said to my friend, don't tell me when we go over the most narrow part! so I closed my eyes and then she told me when we were there! lol and the second time was in Cyprus, we were going up mount Olympus and the roads were very narrow and winding, without anything at the sides of the roads, just a steep drop and she decided to put on a cd in the car, and I had to grab the wheel to stop her and me plunging over the side! It was terrifying! ha ha great hub again about an interesting subject, rated up, cheers nell

Those folks really wanted some roads! I thought about riding all these roads! I wondered if they would really be fun to go down. I'm an excellent descender but the hands get really tired holding the brakes so long. I'd really love to climb these roads/hills. I've been on some roads that were crazy dangerous without being wet. Some grades into mountains wreak havoc on the brake pads. Beautiful again my Brother Pasetio!!! You certainly hit a wonderful chord with me! I love roads!
