Lowari Pass

One of the most dangerous roads of World in Pakistan | Lowari Pass

Among the dangerous road and scary paths found in the whole world one is located in Pakistan, which is one of the most dangerous roads in the World. No doubt, Lowari Pass.

This road is a link between Chitral and Dir in KPK province.

This road is between the mountains on each side of it. While crossing this 145KM long track with dangerous curves, every year dozens of people die. Most of them are the truck drivers. That’s why, in locals, this pass is known as Hell’s road.

Unfortunately the people how die during the winter periods are buried under the snow and can be found only when the snow melts during summer.
