the world's most spectacular roads

Highest roads of Africa

It’s difficult so say where’s the African highest mountain pass. Some sources say they should be found either in Morocco, in the mountainous East Africa or in South Africa/Lesotho. But some of these areas are still not well developed and is hard to obtain reliable information about the condition and elevation of mountain roads there.
