Offbeat Video

Is this the world’s most treacherous road? This vertigo-inducing footage shows the moment bikers crossed an incredibly narrow mountain road just inches from certain death.

The heart-stopping video captures the moment bikers tackled the treacherous ‘road’ in Spiti Valley in the Himalaya mountains following a landslide.


Ankit Bhatnagar, from Delhi, who shot the incredible footage, said it took about 20 minutes to get everyone across with bikers balancing perilously close to the 200ft drop.

The 31-year-old said: “There was a major landslide and the road was blocked for three days.

“The road connects very important part of Spiti Valley and we needed to cross to the other side.


“Luckily there were no serious accidents. This is because we took it nice and slow and we were relaxed. We had to be very careful.

“This goes right on top of the craziest, maddest thing that I’ve ever done in my life and after seeing the scenario many riders returned back and didn’t have the courage to try and cross.

“One mistake and you would be gone. It was a matter of life and death.

“It was a very scary experience.”
