the world's most spectacular roads

Čvrsnica

Čvrsnica is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 7,300ft (2.225m) above the sea level, located in Čvrsnica mountain, in the Dinarides of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The steep trail to the top is dry and rocky. Road to the top is some 12km long with some steep sections with loose rocks but nothing too difficult. The road is in dreadful condition and requires strong nerves to negotiate it.
The weather on this zone is harsh and highly unpredictable. A sudden drop in the temperature, even in summer, can trigger winter-like conditions. The best time to drive is during Summer, late Spring or Fall. Before the ride check the snow conditions. Strong wind can make snow-drifts even 15m thick. Upper plateu is under the snow from November till April - in hidden parts snow remains whole year.
The drive is definitely worth it. There are many excellent photo opportunities here. Don’t forget your camera! On the summit there’s a communication tower. Some people strongly advise against any offroad riding because of the land mine situation. There are several stories from the Balkans war where mountain climbers were intercepted by military just for taking pictures on nearby mountain tops... Now it's used for civil purposes and nobody cares if you're there. View is amazing. Valley (actually a plateau) with lake is some 1100m below, long and steep way down.
