Some people love riding a roller coaster. The feeling of “having their heart in their mouth” makes them thrilled and high on adrenaline. But have you heard of the ways which go through the clouds? Today, let’s visit the most incredible and dangerous roads in the world. They overshadow even the coolest rides and leave people driving on them breathless and terrified. TIMESTAMPS Guoliang Tunnel, China 0:36 Maeklong Railway Market, Thailand 1:22 Yungas Road, Bolivia 1:58 Eyre Highway, Australia 2:47 The “Nose of the Devil” Railway, Ecuador 3:23 Pamban Railway Bridge, India 3:57 Karakoram Highway, Pakistan - China 4:35 Passage de Gois, France 5:12 Leh-Manali Highway, India 5:51 Tianmen Mountain Road, China 6:24 Road through Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia 6:53 Road through Skippers Canyon, New Zealand 7:34 The James W. Dalton Highway, Alaska, USA 8:22 “Train to the Clouds”, Argentina 9:21 SUMMARY - The Guoliang Tunnel is an amazing 0,7 mi (1.2 km) long mountain road in China. The story of its creation is unbelievable! Before its construction there had been a very dangerous path with narrow steep stairs which didn’t have any handrails. - The sellers take their goods away and fold their tents in seconds, giving way to the train which moves at a speed of about 9 mi/h (15 km/h). This is the reason the market is sometimes called Talat Rom Hoop which means “Market Umbrella Close”. - Yungas Road (also called Death Road) connects Bolivian cities of La Paz and Coroico. It descends from the height of 2 miles to 1,181 ft (3,300 to 360 m) above sea level. Despite the fact that the road is very narrow, even trucks manage to pass each other. - If you look at this highway, you will surely ask, “So what is so dangerous on this straight road?” Right, this is the longest straight road in the world with the length of about 994 miles (1,600 km)! - The “Nose of the Devil” railway is built on the rock which has the same name. It was called this way because people believed that Devil didn’t want a railway to pass through that place - that’s why so many deaths occurred among the people who built the road. - Pamban is India’s first sea bridge built in 1914. It connects the mainland part of India with the island which has the same name. In 1964 there was a storm which hit the island. It overturned a passenger train and all 150 people who were inside died. - At 807,7 miles (1,300 km) long, Karakoram is considered the world’s most high-altitude international highway. One of its sections passes at the altitude of more than 15,091 ft (4,600 m). - This is the road between the island of Noirmoutier and mainland France. This passage seems quite common, doesn’t it? It is, until you get to know that to drive along it, you will need to know the schedule of the tides! In fact, the road is approachable only twice a day - before and right after the low tide. - Leh-Manali Highway runs through several high mountain passes. It is located at the altitude of 13,034 to 16,404 ft (4 to 5 km). This road is extremely narrow, covered with dirt and gravel, but this doesn’t prevent local drivers from zooming through at high speeds. - This road leads to the top of Tianmen Mountain where a Buddhist temple is situated. It is only 6.8 miles (11 km) long but it can boast 99 bends with the distance between some of the curves less than 656 ft (200 m)! - The highway which runs through the dried Solar de Uyuni is located at the altitude of 11,811 ft (3,650 m) above sea level. Local landscapes are so unusual that they can be taken for some extraterrestrial grounds! - This road was built in 1880s and it is a true wonder of engineering. The construction took only 5 years and it has remained mostly unchanged since then! This amazing passage has numerous holes, cliffs, steep descents and sharp bends. - Only 108,7 miles (175 km) of this 413,8 miles (666 km) highway are covered with bitumen, the rest of the way you have to drive on gravel. Tough weather conditions, winds, unexpected changes from 2 to 4 lanes and back, poor visibility have made this road particularly deadly. - If you decide to make a 15-hour train journey, be ready to pass through 21 tunnels, 42 bridges and viaducts, 2 spirals and 2 more zigzags on the 134,8 mi (217 km) road! This railway is one of the highest in the world, its top point (at the end of the line) is situated at the altitude of 13,780 ft (4,200 km).

From silly borders in Europe, to the place that separates Brazil from France; These are 21 Unbelievable International Borders ! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 9. Chile and Argentina The countries of Chile and Argentina share a long border that stretches north and south and it’s the 3rd longest in the world and longest in south america. Stretching 3200 miles, it’s naturally separated in most places due to the high elevation of the Andes Mountains. Here in this photo we see this christian statue between the two with Chile on the right and Argentina on the left. The final boundary was established in 1984 and signed at the Vatican 7. Spain and Morocco The Spanish port city of Morocco on the continent of Africa, shares a large border with Morocco. Constructed by Spain, in order to prevent, illegal immigration and smuggling they built this border fence. An estimated 700 have made it across and 6 have died due to clashes with moroccan security forces. Spain spent 33 million euros worth of renovations in 2005 and added more razor wire. Some steps were also made to slow down intruders more peacefully but it still remains an imposing international border. 6. Paraguay Brazil and Argentina A little more peaceful boundary, this one is located where all three of these countries meet. The Parana River flows north and south in this photo and the Iguazu river ends when it meets Paraguay. The rivers act as natural boundaries and have served as valuable resources to all three countries. 5. Belgium and the Netherlands Don’t we wish we could all have borders like this? These two friendly EU countries don’t really have any fences, rivers or mountains, and you might not even know when you’re walking into a different country! These two countries both speak the same language, use the same currency! This border, is found in the town of Baarle Nassau with a population of 6,600 people and the border here gets a little bit complicated as you can see from this photo. There are few random pieces of belgium inside this city due to a number complex treaties, land swaps, land sales, and other complex deals especially during medieval times. Today it mainly serves as a tourist attraction it is kind of border nightmare here. 4. Spain and England You not have even known these two countries actually share a border! If you head to the south of spain, not far from Morocco, you’ll notice something seems different about it, like possibly some monkeys. Get ready to swap out your euro’s for pounds and learn some English, because once you're in Gibraltar, you’re in the UK! This land was signed over to Spain under the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713 and was an extremely important naval base for the British ever since. This strategic port, is located on the strait of Gibraltar, which is the only way to enter from the west into the Mediterranean sea. When the Uk decided to leave the EU, more secure boundaries were built, it lead more Spaniard to want to reclaim the land. However a vote was taken, and the citizens here decided to remain British! 3. India and Bangladesh These two countries share quite a complicated border in Southeast Asia, with India nearly surrounding the entire country. If you look closely at it, it almost appears as a young child scribbled on the map and came up with these borders. India shares is a large, fast growing country and Bangladesh is one of the poorest per capita. The way the border is drawn out, it features random pieces of land belonging to India, surrounded by Bangladesh and, makes it rather difficult to defend.in recent years, it’s become one most dangerous borders in the world. A controversial shoot on site policy was enforced and this 10 foot barbed wire fence was constructed that stretches 2116 miles. 2. North and South Korea Also known as the Korean Demilitarized zone, the Korean peninsula is cut in half along the 38th parallel. The 2.5 mile wide border that separates the two nations is one of the more intense international borders in the world and you can feel the tension about to burst at any moment. Both sides of the demilitarized zones are heavily militarized. Despite attempts to keep the two countries from engaging in all out war, some skirmishes have broken out and tunnels have been found that were built by North Korea. This flag here, sits on the North Korean side is 524 feet tall and can be seen from the South Korean side. US Mexico Border Possibly the most controversial border in the world right now, the Mexican-American border can also appear quite shocking when it comes to urban development like we see in this photo. On the right side you see the city of Tijuana, that seems quite densely populated, even to the very edge of the border. The building on the left, on the US side is built to treat sewage from the Tijuana side, so it’s not exactly an area where Americans want to live.
