Imagine this: A road 66 miles long with 29 hairpin bends, NO safety railings, and still open to the public. This is the Bayburt D915 in Turkey, hailed by dangerousroads.org as the world’s most dangerous road. It gives a whole new meaning to “highway to hell”.
Turkey’s “Highway to Hell”
Located in the foothills of the 6,000-foot-high Soganli Mountain, the road has claimed many lives of drivers who plunged to their doom when they slipped off the road’s edge.
The view from the side…
It was said that “you cannot turn at some of the bends in a single manoeuvre”, making the road even more dangerous. Unbelievably, locals still use the highway, although portions of the road are closed during winter because of ice and snow blizzards.
Look, Ma, no railings!
The Bayburt D915 even edged out the Death Road in Bolivia in terms of riskiness levels. In second place is the Keylong-Kishtwar Road in India, while the Skippers Canyon Road in New Zealand is in third place.
The ‘Death Road’ in Bolivia is mostly a single-lane road with no guard rails. Highest point is at 1,968 feet.
The Skippers Canyon Road in New Zealand’s South Island is extremely narrow and made of gravel.
