Although this is not a mountain road it’s dangerous for a reason. It is called Highway 431 or U.S. Rote 431 but has since been nicknamed the “Highway to Hell” due to the number of accidents that happens here. People believe it is one of the most dangerous in the world and causes the 4th most amount of deaths compared to any other road in America. It is said its main problems are poor visibility and lanes that reduce without any warning.

10. Atlantic Ocean Road, Norway
We all know how powerful and majestic the Atlantic Ocean is. But did you know that you can drive across the ocean? The route was originally proposed as a railway line in the early 20th century, but this was abandoned.
Now this highway is probably ok to drive on when the conditions are right. But it is stormy it is probably best to find another route. Just imagine the huge waves smashing on the road. You wouldn’t want to get wiped out in the Atlantic Ocean, wouldn’t you?
The road is now preserved as a cultural heritage site and is classified as a National Tourist Route. It is a famous site to film automotive commercials and has been declared the world’s best road trip. The road opened back in July 1989.
Here is another mountainside road and another opportunity for brave men to cheat death. Even the best drivers in the world would have a hard time going through this one. Now if the road isn’t dangerous enough, the herd of sheep and goats make this drive even more difficult.
It’ll take forever for these animals to clear the road. And you wouldn’t want to drive at night on this place. There are no lights, railings, and warning signs. Anything could happen and the hospital is way far off. No thanks, but I think I’ll pass this area. Unless someone airlifts to this place.
8. Tianmen Mountain
This highway here looks like something out of a dream. Only in your dream, you don’t have to worry about driving right off the road. Just make sure all the beauty does not distract you as you drive. Aside from the height, the twist and turns of this road make this even more difficult.
The mountain is located within Tianmen Mountain National Park, Zhangjiajie, in south-central Province, People’s Republic of China. A cable car was built and is claimed by tourist publications as the “longest passenger cableway of high mountains in the world”, with 98 cars and a total length of 7,455 meters and ascent of 1,279 meters. The highest gradient is an unusual 37 degrees. Tourists can walk on
Tourists can also walk on kilometers of paths built onto the cliff face at the top of the mountain, including sections with glass floors. A large temple is also located on the summit with a chairlift or footpath access. The original temple here was built in the Tang Dynasty.
7. Road 13 Heroes
Impossible to even imagine the most dangerous traffic jam than that in the mountain. This road is called “The road 13 heroes”, in honor of the 13 men who were able to build such a dangerous route on the steep mountain with 5 years of hard work. All this effort in order to make a road leading to their small village. The road is a continuous tunnel with 35 windows and is about 1250 meters long.
The work was not only difficult but also very dangerous. Some of the villagers died because of accidents during construction. At one point a small village was cut off from the outside world. Now there are thousands of tourists! The village became a jewel of the local mountains because of its unique landscapes and this truly grand tunnel.
