One of the most dangerous roads in the world goes straight through a waterfall in the Himalayas


Part of the Manang Besisahar Road in Nepal, this beats pretty much every dangerous road out of the water... literally

Uber rating: 5 stars

Video of a truck carrying tourists along a cliff side road in Nepal has been uploaded to YouTube, and it is one hell of a ride to watch.

The remote location is on the way from Manang to Besisahar in the Annapurna region, which is a hotspot for mountaineers looking to climb the vast peaks of the Himalayas. Getting there is a problem, however.

The road is paved with danger in the form of a waterfall that covers most of the road during spring, making it look more like a river than a road.

Another video was uploaded last year that showed what the road was like before there was an actual pavement put in.

 

 

The paved section was put in a few years ago along an old mule trail, but is still only suitable for 4×4 vehicles.

The water isn’t the only danger, however, as the road is replete with boulders that the driver has to manoeuvre around or risk damaging his truck.

The man filming the video is sitting in a truck with three people squeezed in the front and four in the back, with others standing in the flatbed at the back of the truck.

Most of them seem pretty unfazed by the fact that they could pretty easily die on that road. If you’re looking to add something to the bucket list, this might be a good option. But do this one last.
