2. Kolyma Highway, Russia
This treacherous road connects Magadan and Yakutsk, a region that boasts the coldest temperature ever recorded outside of Antarctica. In the ten month long winter, this road is plagued with snow, ice and poor visibility. However, it is somewhat traversable because it’s myriad desolate waterways simply freeze into a solid mass. In the summer, the flowing river, extreme rain and mud make this road a nightmare – 100-km long backed-up car line-ups are common. Perhaps more dreadful than the road itself is the history behind the “Road of Bones” which claimed the lives of hundreds of labor camp inmates whose bodies were buried under the asphalt.
