Scary bus ride on edge of cliff in Himalayas – world’s most dangerous road (video)

A mountaineer Mick Fowler posted a heart-stopping video of travelling in a mini-bus on the edge of a cliff in Himalayas.   The road is so narrow, if the mini-bus moves even a few inches to its left, it is certain death for the passengers.    In stomach-turning baravdo, Mick Fowler sticks his head out for the cameras and you can see the abyss below.

The road is so narrow, if the mini-bus moves even a few inches to its left, it is certain death for the passengers.  

In stomach-turning baravdo, Mick Fowler sticks his head out for the cameras and you can see the abyss below.

 

In one segment, the driver’s assistant has to get down to assess if the road is broad enough to let the vehicle roll. 

The bus also has to pass through a small waterfall, which can blur the driver’s vision and make the ride even more riskier. 

The video went viral on Facebook with most people saying no adventure is worth the risk. A few comments even tried to identify the spot.

Anita Sherpa said it was probably the Siliguri Gangtok Highway near Teesta. 

Virendra Rana said it was the "Keylong-Kishtwar" link road whuch connected Himachal Pradesh to Jammu & Kashmir.

A YouTube version of the mentions that it was shot at Manaslu Conservation Area in Nepal. 

Manaslu is the eighth highest mountain in the world at 8,163 metres (26,781 ft) above sea level. 

While the ride looks like a real-life nightmare, people living in mountainous areas may be forced routinely forced to navigate such roads. 

Sometime ago, NewsCrunch had published an equally scary photo of a bus reversing at Kinnaur in Himachal Pradesh – almost teetering over the precipice.
