the world's most spectacular roads

Fairy Meadows Road is a spectacular and dangerous high mountain track with a length of 16,2km, located in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan. It has been heralded as one of the most spectaculars roads in the world by the dangerousroads.org users.

This trail, one of the most dangerous in the world, starts on the Karakoram Highway and ends in the village of Tato, near Fairy Meadows, a picturesque destination at an altitude of about 3,300 meters above the sea level. 


The gravel road has not undergone any repair since it was built by the ethnic villagers of the Nanga Parbat Mountain hundreds of years ago which makes it one of the dangerous roads on this list. The road was built by the local people, and is therefore a private toll road. It’s steep and just the width of the jeep, with unstable gravel road hacked out of the barren hills.

 

Fairy Meadows is the launching point for trekkers who wants to climb the the Nanga Parbat, the 9th highest mountain in the world and second in Pakistan after K2. The first part of the road can be driven by a 4x4 vehicle, but the concluding sections, all the way to Fairy Meadows, needs to be traversed by foot or by a bicycle owing to the congested narrow lane.

 


This road is closed in winter, and is accessible only in summer. Anytime can be closed when the access is not cleared of snow. June and July are the best months to visit this place. This drive is only recommended for the people who are serious mountain lovers and have strong nerves. In 2013 the road was ranked as the second deadliest highway in the world, because of its ‘treacherous high altitude, unstable and narrow mountain roads. 

 

 

Avalanches and heavy snowfalls can sometimes block some sections of the road and can be extremely dangerous cue to frequent patches of ice. It’s an unforgettable experience. Starting high in the Himalayas near the Indus river, the steep and bumpy rocky road swirls up almost 8000 feet on its horrifying 10 km path which surely can be called "Road of Death". One subtle mistake can lead you to a disastrous outcome.

Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering
which blog platform are you using for this website?
I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm
looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
