the world's most spectacular roads

Lalazar Road

Lalazar is a tourist spot at an elevation of 3.123m (10,246ft) above the sea level, located in upper Kaghan Valley in Mansehra District of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of the Pakistan. The road to the summit tests the skill, and courage, of any driver. It’s definitely not for anyone suffering from vertigo or a fear of landslides. 

The deadliest road to the summit is called Lalazar Road. It can be found to the south-west of Batakundi (a turn to the right before the village, if coming from Naran). The track is 4.2 km long with incredible landscapes, pine forest scenic views and charming weather. It’s a typical Pakistani mountain road, with hills on one side and the Kunhar River on the other side. Lalazar is located near the famous Babusar Pass.

This road has humbled many egos. It’s not for the sissies and shouldn’t be attempted by novice drivers. It’s a hair raising jeep ride with several twists and turn. The road can be very crowded during summer season with many twists and turns rising to the top. The road is extremely narrow and steep. Starting from Batakundi the track is 4.2km long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 431m. The average gradient is 10,26% with sections up to 12%.
