Carretera a Los Nevados

The road to this Andean town is extreme. It’s said to be one of the most dangerous roads in the country. It’s gravel, 4x4 vehicles only, and impassable for 2 cars at the same time. This road tests the skill, and courage, of any driver. It’s definitely not for anyone suffering from vertigo or a fear of landslides.

This scary and dangerous cliff road leading to the town can get very muddy and slippery after rain making it challenging to get through. During and after a storm the road may be impassable, even with a four-wheel-drive vehicle. Avalanches, heavy snowfalls and landslides can occur anytime.
