Incredible Roads to Discover While Traveling
Romania is one of the greenest countries in the world. This country attracts a lot of nature lovers and makes them fall in love with the green meadows, mountains, rivers and plains. The country is a beautiful fusion of rural and urban culture where life generates a new dimension. Romania is also famous for some breathtaking roads and one of them is the Transfăgărășan. It is a 60-mile road that runs between two of the highest peaks in Romania.
India, a country rich in culture, is one of the most visited countries in Asia. The country is famous for its food, traditions, colorful festivals and landmarks. Taj Mahal, the white marble mausoleum, is one of the most prized tourist destinations in India. When discussing some of the most dangerous roads in the world, India tends to rank quite highly. The Zoji La is a 5.6 mile road that connects Ladakh and Kashmir. It is the second highest pass on the Srinagar-Leh highway. It is just a narrow pass on the mountain without a proper road. You watch death eye-to-eye and wonder how the locals use this road daily.
Alaska is another destination where you get a close look at nature. The calm environment of the country gives you a peace of mind unlike any other. The icy mountains are a joy to watch and each year, the country hosts tourists in record numbers. Alaska or AK is also famous for the Dalton Highway. This highway was featured in a popular television show called “Ice Road Truckers”, allowing it to gain a lot of popularity from the show. The highway consists of a barren 414-mile road and along the way, there are only three small villages.
China is most famous for its mouthwatering Chinese food and a growing middle class population. However, the roads you will see in China are not always of the highest quality. One of the prime example of an unusual & incredible road includes the Guoliang Tunnel. This road which goes through the Taihang Mountains was initially built by the local villagers. Until 1972, the path carved into the rock was the only connection between the village and the rest of the country. Today the road is properly built but it keeps the travelers on their feet until it is passed.
These are some of the most beautiful countries that you should visit and the roads you could come across while you are in the area.
