the world's most spectacular roads

 

Located in the Al Madow mountain range in northern Somalia, the Maydh - Erigavo is a high mountain track. The road is gravel. It’s 76.6 km long and links Maydh, an ancient port city and the town of Erigavo, also spelled as Erigabo. 4x4 recommended.

The road is narrow and pretty steep. It climbs up an elevation of 2.067m above the sea level. There are several tunnels and hairpin turns along the route.In many places the road is bordered by a drop of hundreds of meters (many hundreds of feet) unprotected by guardrails.

>Scenic drives in Norway. Norway has 18 carefully selected scenic drives both in terms of nature/panorama. 
>Romanian high altitude roads. Romania has some amazing roads, real tourist destinations by themselves. 
>Faroese challenging tunnels. Harrowing one lane tunnel on a 2 way road. Kind of frightening to drive through if you're not used to it.
>Highest accessible towns by car on Earth. Permanent settlements occupied year-round, accessible by car.
>The world's best road. The world's best road has just been announced: the N-222 from Peso de Regua to Pinhao in Portugal.
>Longest straight roads in the world. From point A to B in the fastest time possible, sometimes you need to cut corners.
>Highest tunnels in the world. After years of work in rarefied air and frigid temperatures at more than 4,000m, these tunnels are engineering marvels sure to impress anyone.
>The world's northernmost road ends. Get a reliable car, lots of food, water, matches, warm clothing, and gas.
