2.Stelvio Pass Italy

This is the another road its located in the Eastern Alps in Italy.The mountain road pass is situated at an attitude of around 1.7 miles above sea level.The road is particularly challenging to drive due to the presense of 48 hair pin bends,with the road becoming exceedingly narrow at same points,and some very sheep inclines.with the roads narrow on the northern side and the hairpins ridiculously tight.This is the toughest part and even more toughest with almost zero visiblity to oncoming vehicles.

3.Trollstigen in Norway

The Word Trollstigen means the Troll Ladder.Trollstigen is a road in Rauma,Norway.It is a popular tourist attraction due to its steep hairpin inclines of nine percent and eleven hairpin bends up a mountain side.However once you you are at the top the view just breathtaking.And the road is very narrow and there are only few possibilities where two cars can pass.This is the most notable among the four Road by its pecularities.

    Interesting roads nikitha p. The Amalfi Corniche,which runs between Naples and Amalfi is fairly hairy to negotiate, but you are compensated with stunning views

    What a cool hub idea! We have a few scary mountain roads here in Oregon. The kind where I clutch my seat and use my "imaginary brake" if someone else is driving.
