Zoji La Pass (Sonamarg, Jammu & Kashmir)
Pretty sure the picture says it all. Having an altitude of 3539 meters, many considered this path to be one of the most dangerous roads that India could offer. Having a rough and muddy terrain with narrow roads that fall straight towards steep valleys, it isn’t surprising. And to top it all, it’s an area prone to landslides.

Nathu La Pass (Nathu La, Sikkim)
Having intense curve-filled stretches throughout, it doesn’t help that the roads are slippery also. Having no rail-guards on the sides of the roads and for the ice that generallyforms on its roads automatically qualifies the Nathu La Pass as one of the most dangerous to travel through.
Se La Pass (Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh)
It’s one thing to be at a height of 4170 meters above sea-level with scary bends through the entire route and it’s another thing to have snow covering the roads making it a hell lot of slippery! And no rail-guards is just the icing on a snow-covered cake. The perfect place for a coming-of-age ritual that anyone with guts should take, try it out if you think you can.

The Road to Kinnaur –NH22 (Himachal Pradesh)
Filled with low-hanging rocks and blind road bends, this is definitely not for the inexperienced traveller. Travelling through here allows you to know what it’s like to be less than a meter between a rock and a steep valley leading down to a raging river. Also harbouring low-hanging rocks, this is truly one of the most dangerous trail in India, so if you think you got what it takes, give this one a shot!
Neral – Matheran Road (Raigad, Maharashtra)
The Neral – Matheran road takes you on a rapidly elevating road trip, making you start off at 80 meters above sea level at Neral and leaving you above 800 meters when you reach Matheran. Being steep and having sharp bends makes this a thrilling as well as scary road trip to take, but one that is definitely worth it also. You can also take super bikes on rent in Mumbai to ride on this location.
