Nepal in BBC World's Most Dangerous Roads

Well, it’s mostly well known that Nepal has the most dangerous Airport in the world, i.e. the Lukla Airport. But Nepal can’t just be limited to

But Nepal can’t just be limited to dangerous airways; here comes another episode/report from BBC that includes Nepal in the world’s most dangerous roads. It leaves me bit surprised but then having watched it, I think I have yet to explore many parts of my country.

Watch the video and you will know what I wanted to mean! (Watch the Video above till its available. It’s taken from BBC iplayer website)

Worlds Most Dangerous Roads

Here’s the description from the BBC about the dangerous journey attempted by Comedians Rhod Gilbert and Greg Davies exploring the Terai, hills and mountains of Nepal all the way from Nepal’s one end bordering India to the other end bordering China.

Comedians Rhod Gilbert and Greg Davies attempt to drive through the mountainous, landlocked nation of Nepal. Starting from the chaotic border with India, they travel across the country’s most important roads, from highways that maintain its cities to freshly-dug dirt tracks that connect to isolated communities.

There are uplifting stories throughout, but it is a journey that is fraught with danger. Besides having one of the world’s highest rates of road traffic accidents, floods and landslides are an everyday occurrence, blocking traffic for days on end and claiming dozens of lives every month.

After days of swerving overloaded buses, dodging trucks and clinging to crumbling mountain roads, disaster strikes within sight of their final destination.

Here are some Images from the above video!
