Nada Tunnel

The haunted Nada Tunnel in Kentucky

Located in Powell County, Kentucky, in USA, Nada Tunnel is a harrowing one lane tunnel on a two way road. The tiny hole, with layers and layers of limestone outcroppings sitting above it, is reportedly haunted.

This historic 900-foot (270 m) long tunnel is located along Kentucky Route 77 (also known as Nada Tunnel Road). Built for the Dana Lumber Company, its construction began in December 1910 and was completed in September 1911. Formerly it was a railway tunnel. The unlit tunnel seems designed to intimidate drivers. It’s reportedly haunted by a climber who fell to his death in this area. Locals also claim that a glowing green light is often seen in the tunnel at night. It’s one of the most haunted tunnels on Earth.

This genuinely stunning piece of engineering is a one-way section of a two-way road. The length is 900 feet (270 m) and the height 13 feet (4.0 m). The surface is asphalted. The two-lane road also narrows to a single lane going through the very narrow tunnel, so drivers have to be constantly alert and hope that anyone coming through the tunnel on the other side got the message to yield. Drivers must watch for the headlights of oncoming vehicles. It is 12-foot-wide by 13 feet high; so RVs, tour buses and other high vehicles should use extra caution. The tunnel gives the illusion of being in danger of being crushed at any moment.
