the world's most spectacular roads

Laza Road

Laza is a high mountain village at an elevation of 1.670m (5,479ft) above the sea level, located in the Qusar Rayon of Azerbaijan. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with hairpin curves and dangerous dropoffs.

The surface of the road is gravel. Do not travel this road in severe weather conditions. Avalanches, heavy snowfalls and landslides can occur anytime, being extremely dangerous due to frequent patches of ice. 4x4 recommended. The road is bordered by a drop of hundreds of meters (many hundreds of feet) unprotected by guardrails. Fog is common.

The route demands 100% concentration. Starting from Zindanmuruq, a small village at 1.144m above the sea level, the road is 9.7 km long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 526 meters. The average gradient is 5.44%, with sections up to 10%. This road has humbled many egos.
