[1]  Guolian g Tunnel, Chinahttps://brightside.me/wonder-curiosities/the-worlds-14-most-dangerous-roads-that-take-your-breath-away-332460/#image14218160

The Guoliang Tunnel is 1.2 km (0.75 mi) long and was 
built through a mountain range leading to the village of the same name.
In the 1970s, the inhabitants of the village made this tunnel and the
"windows" in it themselves using only hand tools. The width of the 
tunnel is about 4 m (13 ft), so drivers have to be extremely careful.
 

[2] Maeklong Railway Market, Thailandhttps://brightside.me/wonder-curiosities/the-worlds-14-most-dangerous-roads-that-take-your-breath-away-332460/#image14218210

At first sight,  Maeklong Market resembles hundreds of other Thai 
markets...but  only until you hear the whistle of the train which passes 
right through the market stalls.  The sellers take their goods away and fold 
their tents in seconds, giving way to the train that moves at a speed of 
about 15 km/h.

[3] Yungas Road, Bolivia
https://brightside.me/wonder-curiosities/the-worlds-14-most-dangerous-roads-that-take-your-breath-away-332460/#image14218260

 
Yungas Road connects the Bolivian cities of La Paz and Coroico. Descending
from a height of 3,300 to 360 m (2 mi to 1,181 ft) above sea level, it forms a number 
of loops. Despite the fact that the road is very narrow, even trucks manage to pass 
each other. However, one of them often has to back up for quite a distance.

 

[4] Eyre Highway, Australia
https://brightside.me/wonder-curiosities/the-worlds-14-most-dangerous-roads-that-take-your-breath-away-332460/#image14218310

 
Looking at this  highway, one can hardly imagine it’s really dangerous. However,
the number of accidents on this 1,600-km (994 mi) stretch of Australian highway, 
built far from localities, is really high. The reason is quite simple: the landscapes 
here are so monotonous that drivers simply fall asleep at the wheel.

[5] The "Nose of the Devil" Railway, Ecuador
https://brightside.me/wonder-curiosities/the-worlds-14-most-dangerous-roads-that-take-your-breath-away-332460/#image14218360

The "Nose of the Devil" railway is built on the rock of the same name at 
an altitude of 800 m (2,624 ft). Until recently, tourists were allowed to ride 
on the roofs of wagons running here, but today it’s prohibited.

[6] Pamban Railway Bridge, India
https://brightside.me/wonder-curiosities/the-worlds-14-most-dangerous-roads-that-take-your-breath-away-332460/#image14218410

 
Pamban Bridge connects the mainland part of India with the island of 
the same name.  In 1964, the bridge was destroyed by the strong winds of the
Palk Strait. This is why now, when wind speed exceeds 55 km/h, trains 
receive a special signal warning of the possible danger.

[7] Karakoram Highway, Pakistan — China

[14] "Train to the Clouds," Argentina

https://brightside.me/wonder-curiosities/the-worlds-14-most-dangerous-roads-that-take-your-breath-away-332460/#image14218810
During the 217-k (134.8 mi) railway journey, the train passes through 21 tunnels,
42 bridges and viaducts, 2 spirals, and 2 more zigzags. Its romantic name was 
given to the road thanks to the altitude on which some of its segments are located:
sometimes it’s so high that the trains pass right through the clouds.
