2.     Zoji La

The chiselled mountains protrude from the side and may hang above your head so don’t be faint-hearted!

4.     Kishtwar Road

This road is another one which is one of the most terrifying mountain trails you will plan on to go. The route is simply exposed on one side by an entangling gorge while the road is not fully built. The narrow windy road doesn’t have any rails alongside for about 100 miles running along the Chenab River. Gravelling roads with stones all over and sand on the surface is not an easy one to cross. The overhanging cliffs come down super low that cars barely fit into it while the rocks hang down and cannot be attempted by novice drivers. Tourists have dubbed the track as ‘the Almost Killer’ road.  

5.     Sangla Road

This road has the cliff that hangs downwards which will give you goose-bumps while passing. One wrong move can cost you your life since the abyss is deep and are as clothes as death can be. The adrenalin-pumping route has several potholes and is barely broad enough for large vehicles to pass. The rocky precipice has an overhanging rock that gives you the eerie feeling of driving through a tunnel while there is a sheer drop of a few hundred feet if you try to look down.

6.     Pune-Mumbai Expressway
