Road trips are a relaxing way to spend a couple of hours with friends or family on the open road. Whether it be for a weekend getaway or a move across the country, killing some time on the road is usually a mindless, yet enjoyable experience. But some places in the world don't have nice smooth pavement or big open highways. Instead, they use one-lane dirt passes where any mistake means instant death.
Along the Himalayan mountain range lies some of the most treacherous roads in all the world. Carved out of the side of a steep cliff, these single-lane, unpaved dirt passes have absolutely no runoff, and no guardrail for if you slip up. The slightest mistake means you'll be tumbling down thousands of feet, never to be heard from again.
Youtube channel Himalayan Roads filmed their journey from the Indian town of Shimla to the Pangi Valley. It's full of close calls, and at one point it even starts snowing-as if the drive wasn't hard enough.
