the world's most spectacular roads

Kelok Sembilan

Located in West Sumatra, Indonesia, "Kelok 9" or "9 curve-climbs" is a very famous road linking Central Trans-Sumatra Highway and East Trans-Sumatra Highway. The spot is very scenic.

The road is located in the province of Riau, in West Sumatra. It’s 2.7 km (1,7 mi) long. The road was built between 1908 and 1914. In the past it was famous for having 9 steep curving-climbs that sometimes lead to traffic congestion.
The road is asphalted. The drive is definitely worth it. There are many excellent photo opportunities. Don’t forget your camera! In 2013, 6 new bridges were officiated to replace the old climbs. These bridges greatly reduce the congestion and also great to enjoy.
