BANGALORE: It's pretty clear that driving is an adventure. We often look for places that offer lots of scenic landscapes, diverse wildlife, hiking and other natural activities. It really becomes a challenge just to stay on the road. Along with adventure, there is a lot of risk involved.  To drive on the roads with numerous hairpin bends, cliffs, slopes, this is definitely not for the faint-hearted or nervous drivers. But the drive is definitely worth it. Take a look at the World’s most spectacular roads



#1.The Stelvio Pass

This Italian road is one of the highest in the Alps and the most magnificent road pass in Europe. It is famous for its set of 48 hairpin bends that make for magnificent photography and also some very memorable driving as you stitch your way up the pass. Located in the province of Sondrio, Stelvio attracts a series of enthusiasts including bikes, cars and bicycles. This road is very exciting and sometimes very exposed and insecure driveways with innumerable twists and turns.



#2.Jodhpur to Jaisalmer



A 300 km drive through the great Thar desert across the golden dunes, surrounded by the Indus River, Aravalli Mountain Ranges and salt marsh known as the Great Rann of Kutch to Jaisalmer. The road cross through small town of Pokhran gives you a great driving experience through the desert circuit, sand dunes along with the desert animals which are a pleasure to watch.
