the world's most spectacular roads

 

Wakan Village is a high mountain town at an elevation of 2,000 meters above the sea level in the Western Hajar Mountains of Oman. The road to the town is on a narrow and steep mountainous road and should only be attempted in a 4WD car.

The road to the summit has humbled many egos. It’s not for the sissies and shouldn’t be attempted by novice drivers. It’s unpaved for the last 25km. A 4WD with reduction gear is necessary because the last few kilometres consist of rough track with steep and sharp bends. There is a small area for car parking.

>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.
