Watch the nail-biting moment a bus drives around a precarious Himalayan mountain road, surrounded by a drop of 15,000ft into a deep valley.

Manohar Lal, captured the sweaty-palmed moment he drove around the Spiti Valley during the 35km journey from Khab to Nako, India.


Surrounded by snow-capped mountains, rugged grey stone and unstable cliff edges, the possibility of falling into the Sutlej river in the bottom of the valley appears imminent.

The 34-year-old web developer tries to find new locations to trek as he has an interest in visiting the world’s most dangerous roads.

Manohar said: “The Spiti Valley Road is one of the toughest adventure roads left on this planet.


“A single mistake can lead to death in a deep valley.

“The road is incredibly close to Satlej River and is prone to landslides.

“It’s located in a desert mountain valley, high in the Himalaya mountains, in the north-eastern part of the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh.”
