The WOrld Most Dangerous Road Accident YOu should watch to learn

Here are some world’s most dangerous and unusual roads, on which you don’t want to travel.
The Passage du Gois is a natural, periodically flooded passage leading to the island of Noirmoutier in France. It is located between Île de Noirmoutier and Beauvoir Sur Mer, in the department of Vendée. It is flooded twice a day by the high tide. Length of this track is 4.125 km. Taroko gorge road is also in the list of worlds most dangerous roads.

Skippers Canyon is a historic and scenic gorge, some 22 kilometres in length, that is located several kilometres north of Queenstown. Today accessed from Queenstown via the same road that leads to Coronet Peak skifield, Skippers Canyon houses the Shotover River, one of New Zealand’s richest gold-bearing rivers which was named by William Gilbert Rees. Rees, his wife Frances and brother in law Nicholas von Tunzelmann were the first European settlers in and near where Queenstown is now located. Once a busy goldmining area, Skippers Canyon was accessed by Skippers Road, which is today one of New Zealand’s better known scenic roads.

The main New Zealand road where rental car insurance is not honoured if driven on, Skippers Road is mostly one-way, narrow and steep with sheer drops of several hundred metres. Apart from its goldmining history, Skippers Canyon was also the site where electricity was first generated at a place called Bullendale, a small former goldmining settlement some 4 hours walk from the farthest end of Skippers Road.

Halsema Highway is a national highway in the Philippines. Situated within the Cordillera Central range in northern Luzon, it stretches from the city limit of Baguio to the municipality of Bontoc.At its highest point at 7,400 feet above sea level in the municipality of Atok, it is the highest altitude highway in the Philippines.Parts of the highway are dangerous, especially during the rainy season, when landslides are common and asphalted portions become slippery.

Eyre Highway is a 1,660 kilometre highway linking Western Australia and South Australia via the Nullarbor Plain. Signed as National Highways 1 and A1, it forms part of Highway 1 and the Australian National Highway network linking Perth and Adelaide.
