the world's most spectacular roads

Apartaderos

Located in Mérida State, Venezuela, Apartaderos is the highest town in the country, at an elevation of 3.505m (11,499ft) above the sea level. It’s one of the highest towns accessible by car on Earth.

The road to the town is called Carretera Transandina. It’s asphalted. It has a well-deserved reputation for being dangerous because of unpredictable snowstorms and blizzards, and driving under these conditions, can be extremely challenging. The town sits at the intersection of three river valleys: the Chama, the Santo Domingo and the Motatán.
