3. Zojila Pass, India

This incredible narrow mountain pass in the Himalayas, is located at a stupefying 3500 metres above sea level. But anyone who's been near will tell you it is not the place for our joy, being the second pass in the world. The Zojila is reckoned to be one of the most gnarly passes in the world, but the terrifying draft loss and absence of barriers on the road are not the only things given old drivers the willies. Not only is the narrow driveway tricky to maneuver, but it's also not uncommon for large herds of cattle to block traffic on the road with no way to turn around drivers have to stop and wait until all the livestock can safely pass through and continue their journey

4.Tianmen Mountain Road, China

The road has 99 sharp turns on its way up Tianmen Mountain, rising from 200 to 1,300 metres above sea level ,also called the road to the sky. The tainmen road has been ambiguously described as being both the most beautiful and imposing road in the world, as well as the world's most dangerous road here. Each turn a head is more dangerous than the last. And misjudging a single turn could mean certain death. Above, photo showing Tianmen mountain road in China © BBC

5.Guoliang Tunnel, China

It is located in Henan Province of China and was constructed to provide access to a remote village at the top of the mountain. This is not an easy way up the tunnels that makes the roads a year four meter width carved by hand, along the side of a mountain route passes through intervals and roughly pillars, which, although not entirely safe, are the only things keeping cars from plummeting, the tunnels twists, turns and slippery blind spots made for tight driving that is sure to leave any drivers fine. Even though the local shank either way easily through the tunnels. Don't be fooled into thinking it's an easy drive up the steep incline proves to be too much, even for a skilled driver who's not familiar with the road.
