Those of us who live in the U.S. might take the roads we drive on for granted. The majority of them are well paved and maintained so driving on them hardly requires a second thought. But that’s not the case in other countries around the world. You will need all of your wits about you if you plan on driving on these heart stopping and treacherous roads.

Kolyma Highway in Russia is as slippery as it gets with its constant exposure to rains.
The Wilderness Road in Bolivia
The Wilderness Road to the Selva Blue Lodge in Bolivia doesn’t have gas access and it is very desolate. You wouldn’t want to be stuck out here alone.

The Ophir Pass Road in Ophir Colorado is meant for four wheel drive vehicles only with its rocky terrain.
