if my tittle doesnt make sense just look at the road.the mountain looks to be perpendicular(well almost) to the earth.yet humans decide to cut a road through it.

What a setting to make a road, it is incredible what people are able to achieve, I can just imagine the difficulty of building that, and also how nerve wracking it must be to drive along there. I like the way the foreground and the background come together in two sections and the image almost takes on an artistic abstract quality.

This is an extraordinary road and looks dangerous. I am wondering what protection there is to stop vehicles going off the edge! A super image showing the sheer rock face with vegetation clinging on where it can.
Very well done and TFS.
Kind Regards, Ann

helo dwai, I even can't see such roads, and can't even think about going there. Crazy people that build like this. Fantastic shot and you are so brave to be there.

If this is actually a road intended for motor vehicles it would be too much for my nerves to use it. Donkeys or camels would be more suitable. But it is an impressive job that has been done here, cutting this road through the rock, and the scenery generally is overwhelming. Since you survived to show us this photo you obviously found a safe place for taking it. A terrific and hair-raising composition.

This road looks as if it had been cut out of the mountain with a pocket knife. It's like a big scar in the landscape and it shows the challenges that man must continually meet to tame its environment. Great shot.

hi dwiapayan. i would rather say: human disturbance. we, human beings are so nosy when it comes to disturbing nature. i mean, don't settle at the place where this road leads to, and don't try to make possible a road which actually is impossible. and one day a rock falls down on a truck, and they keep on asking, why the nature punished them...

A majestic view closeup that so perilous and imagine you drive on the carved-in road on the edge of the steep cliff!! Doubtless this must be most rewarding shot and wonderful the way you've caught it, probably once in a life time experience there. Great capture and tx for sharing. Congrats

What a place to build this road...I very well remember this deadly road from Sangla upto Karchaam. Here you a have a nice shot, showing the perils of the road to the maximum extent. Excellent photo.

Namaskar dear Dwaipayan
Excellent tight frame has accentuated the textures and the sense of height of these marvellous cliffs. The colours and sharpness are well-balanced. I also like the white frame around it/ Well done. Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful day.

yes, we've seen a few of these dangerous roads in India.
pretty amazing isn't it.
have you ever taken a truck along these roads? whats it like?
I've been on similar roads in Peru, scary ride!
we can see the steepness of the cliff, fine shot.

very curious and dangerous road, I guess it is the same I saw in a documentary series about truckers crossing these regions.a real amazing place, perfect image to show it. TFS.
