    I'm surprised that there's no mention of the road that goes over the Guallatiri volcano in Chile. It's the highest road in the world. People crossing it must take a Viagra or use an air tank to prevent altitude hypoxia. The air pressure is so low that vehicles are affected as well.
    During the climb, they used a pulse oximeter to read their blood oxygen saturation, which sometimes was down to 84%, a value which in normal life would recommend admission to hospital.

    With about two feet of snow on the ground right now, I think my road, Northshore Drive near Bloomington, IN, needs to go on the list! Coming home from the store yesterday we got stuck trying to drive up a hill.

    Some of the roads are dangerous due to difficult natural terrain. In India, Grand Trunk Road built on plain is dangerous due to hazardous crowded traffic without any strict traffic regulations. Accidents on this road kills more persons than really dangerous roads in Himalayan mountainous region.

    If you guys really wanna see one of the most dengerous road, you must come to Nepal. I hope that you will get really good examples. Nepal is hilly country and roads are so dengerous so I think roads in Nepal should be the top ten dengerous roads in the world.

    The old Yungas road is the most dangerous because it is a one way road which is used in both directions, there are a lot of trucks, buses and particular drivers across the road and if you have to give some space to one o them you are tested to the limit because one minimal fail and you are done, besides fog and frozen asphalt make it very difficult at the beginning, the weather is incredible tricky and landslides are a common thing. When you finished the road you feel alive again.

    The Lowari Pass Road (Hells Road), a stretch of 240 km from Dir to Chitral, in Pakistan is really gruesome. AlJazeera aired a 25 minute video of the road in its show ‘Risking it All’.

    http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/riskingitall/2011/05/20115414525333804.html

    The most dangerous stretch are the Death Tunnel and descent from the top of the mountain. Due to sludge, truckers cant even apply breaks properly. They just have to prey that the truck will gain traction. Even Jeeps encounter problems there.

    Note: There are plans for a 8 km Tunnel (shown in video) that will reduce the time by half making it much easier. Unfortunately, the work has been abandoned due to multiple problems. Interestingly, the work on the tunnel has been ongoing since 1975.

    I may take a trip on Lowari Pass and Yungas , but never on the 650 km stretch on Lubumbashi to Bukama. Here is a report from Aljazeera.

    http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/riskingitall/2011/05/201151073240594854.html

    Note: Almost everyone will agree with me. (Ask the Top Gear drivers to take a truck ride here, and we may not have another episode of Top Gear….)

    Hello! The photo below the video on the road “Halsema Highway” is actually the “Serra do Rio do Rastro”, in southern Brazil. Another Brazilian road, little known even among Brazilians, is the “Serra do Corvo Branco”, which is near the Serra do Rio do Rastro. Below these two Brazilian roads. Great post, congratulations! And sorry for the English…

      Yes you are right,the picture is not from Halsema Highway,the road has a much better look and the bus is of different design/looks. No aircon bus is normally use in this area. But anyway Halsema is not that dangerous if you stay awake and less alcohol in your blood.

    i think that the researchers about worlds most dangerous road mentioned in this are like frog living in well. They should better once visit the roads of nepal specially of the hilly n mountain region. The documentary about nepal’s road have been recently made by BBC HD and shown in its program worlds most dangerous road. Lol :p:d

    Good observation. No. 3 – 8 and 1 look quite treacherous. As for no. 2 that is a typical example of Kenyan roads. Very dangerous, not by design but due to driver negligence and sometimes lack of repair (potholes)
