10 most dangerous roads in India

India is a place full of surprises. It is a country with natural diversity varying from mountains in the North East to the desert in the West, wetlands of Sunderbans in the East, and finally, rivers and lakes spread throughout the country. It has an extremely rich cultural heritage. It is the birthplace of Subhash Chandra Bose, Mahatma Gandhi, Maharana Pratap, Rani Lakshmi Bai and many other famous personalities. It is an excellent tourist spot and attracts hundreds of tourists every year from different countries. Tourists often want to engage themselves in adventurous sports as the country gives them the scope to do so. Well, just like every rose plant has thorns in them, these adventurous routes are filled with danger. You have to be a real daredevil in order to involve yourself in such risks. Some of the most dangerous roads in India are discussed below:

Fantasized by its scenic beauty, one may imagine himself/herself driving over this mountainous road. It is one of the most difficult mountain roads to cross. It has an altitude of 11000 feet and is one of the highest roadways. It falls in the way from Srinagar to Leh. It often faces the muddy road, snow storms and landslides which makes it all the more dangerous.

It is an extremely narrow and rocky pathway located in the southwestern part of Himachal Pradesh. The pathway is actually carved out of a rock. What makes the road scary are the sharp blind turns and minimum space between two cars to cross each other. Accidents are often reported in these regions.

Khardung La

This roadway is being used by tourists every year and therefore one may intend to cut off its name from among the most dangerous list.

Leh-Manali Highway
