5 most dangerous roads in India that are a driver’s nightmare

For ages, India has attracted travellers and thrill-seekers from all over the world. India’s rugged terrain is popular among adventurers. The nation has some of the most beautiful roads in the world. However, among the beautiful splendour is a maze of dangerous roads that challenge the nerves of even experienced drivers.

Here are 5 most dangerous roads in India that are a driver’s nightmare


1. Zoji La Pass

Zoji La Pass is one of the most stunning highways in India, but also one of the most dangerous due to its extremely narrow and perpetually coated with snow. The vehicle can fall to the ground quickly from a height of 3,538 feet. When travelling from Srinagar to Leh, you will come across this trail. The pass is an important link connecting Kashmir and Ladakh.

2. Nathu La Pass

Situated 54 kilometres east of Gangtok, Nathu La is one of the three commercial border crossing locations between China and India. At 4,310 meters above sea level, the pass is one of the highest that is reachable by vehicle.

3. Rohtang Pass

Rohtang Pass is cut through the Pir Panjal Range. It is an entrance to Himachal Pradesh’s stunning valleys, but the steep levels, narrow hairpin bends and unpredictable weather make for a dangerous ride.

4. Khardung La Pass

Adventure seekers are drawn to Khardung La, which is frequently referred to be the highest motorable pass in the world. However, its breathtaking altitude of over 18,000 feet and unwelcome weather conditions present major risks.

5. National Highway 22

The NH22 is one of the riskiest roads in India as it passes through a mountain. There are no railings. The roads in the most unexpected places become increasingly abrupt, narrow and curved. Death appears above you along the route in the form of tunnels and cliffs all around.
