15 Most Dangerous Roads in the World

Kolyma Highway, Russia

R504 Kolyma Highway has a nickname that will make you want to stay home – the Road of Bones.

Connecting the cities of Yakutsk and Magadan, Kolyma Highway is the eastern portion of a road network that crosses through all Siberia.

It is a bit far-fetched to call it a highway. The only stretch of tarmac on R504 is nothing when compared to the discouraging number of kilometers of hostile terrain that scare even the most hardcore enduro bikers.

Whatever you do, don’t go during the spring! Due to the generous rains, vast rivers reclaim section of the road, turning the rest into a mud Apocalypse.

Hell, you might even come across some bones of the forced laborers that built the Kolyma Highway during Communist times. If that doesn’t scare you, the prospect of crossing unstable bridges and having grizzly bears fooling you to lower the windows should do the trick.
