... track with some scary hairpin bends, taking us to a height of 2874m to the plateau along a 9km stretch. This is not for the faint hearted, there is loose rubble, potholes and rivers to cross, on steep slopes with no barriers to protect from tumbling over the mountain edge. It is a notoriously dangerous road with occasional remains of vehicles that did not succeed in navigating its steep gradients and poor traction surfaces, and has a catalogue of frightening ...
