the world's most spectacular roads

 

The Bongabon-Baler road is a very exciting and challenging drive on the island of Luzon, in Philippines. During and after a storm the road may be impassable, even with a four-wheel-drive vehicle.

The road is extreme. It links Bongabon in the province of Nueva Ecija and Baler, the capital of the province of Aurora. It’s 85.3 km long. This road tests the skill, and courage, of any driver. It’s definitely not for anyone suffering from fear of landslides. It’s pretty narrow.

  

Expect more than 200 turns. The road is pretty steep, climbing up to 687m above the sea level. The gravel road crosses the Diteki river. The bridge was washed away some years ago, so vehicles have to cross inside the river. Especially treacherous and dangerous after heavy rains.

Located within the Aurora Memorial National Park, this track can get very muddy and slippery after rain making it challenging to get through. 4x4 recommended. After rains, 4x4 required. The road is in dreadful condition and requires strong nerves to negotiate it. It’s certainly breathtaking and it has a fearsome reputation.
