Sinjar Mountain Road: the drive with 100 hairpin turns

Sinjar Mountain road is a paved road located in the Sinjar Mountain, a single ridge of mountains located in Nineveh Governorate in northwestern Iraq. The road has 90-100 hairpin turns over a distance of 20 km (12 mi).

The road starts in Sinjar, a city with the same name and climbs up to the Sinjar Mountain, the place where Noah's Ark settled after the biblical flood. This road is very exciting and sometimes very exposed. A unsecured driveway in innumerable twists and turns.
