the world's most spectacular roads

 

Murghab is a high mountain town at an elevation of 3.618 m (11,869 ft) above the sea level, located in the Pamir Mountains of Tajikistan. It’s one of the highest towns accessible by car on Earth.

The road to the town is the historical Pamir Highway, officially called M41. It’s mostly paved. The climb is simply terrible, with a notorius lack of oxygen that tests the organisms and a high degree of steepness.  Due its unique location and the climb in elevation over thousands of feet, and passing through remote areas, it is important when driving in these conditions to be prepared. 

 

This road passes through remote areas, so you need to be prepared. Expect whipping wind, hail and bitter cold. The town is the highest town in Tajikistan (and of the former Soviet Union).
