Some of the most dangerous road routes in India

National Highway 22

This is undoubtedly the scariest road in India ever! It has featured on History Channel’s ‘IRT Deadliest Roads’ series. It is also known as the Hindustan-Tibet Road, which starts at Ambala and goes through Haryana and Himachal Pradesh. The road spans over 459kms

Sangla Road

The cliff-hanging drive and narrow roads on the Sangla Road will certainly give you goosebumps. One wrong move and you will fall down in the abyss. The roads are certainly closed during winters, but even when they are open, they are as close to death as they can be.

Kolli Hill Road

Infamous for 70 continuous hairpin bends, the Kolli Hill Road is not for the faint-hearted. Hence, Kolli Hill is also called as the ‘Mountain of Death’. Located in Tamil Nadu, the spot is famous for Agaya Gangai waterfalls and a Shiva temple.

Leh-Manali Highway

This is no ordinary road; it is a dirt-gravel road that passes through the beautiful valleys of Lahaul and Spiti. A 479-km insane stretch, the road is scenic yet challenging. Care has to be taken while driving as the road is prone to a lot of landslides. Due to Leh-Ladakh’s popularity, the road is often congested. The road is only open in summer as it suffers severe blockage during winters.
