10 Craziest Roads on Earth ~ #Eco #travel #transportation #photography

Looking for the scenic route with an adrenaline rush to boot? Well look no further then the Col de Turini in France. Situated more than 1 mile above sea level near the Italy-France border, The Col De Turini is one of the more famed roads that winds through the Alps. This gem has been a stage in the Monte Carlo Rally, a part of the Tour De France and listed as one of the best driving roads by the show Top Gear. What makes this road so special? Well how about this: it is 1607m high and starts with a stunning series of hairpin turns that wind the driver down into a gorge surrounded by awesome scenery – a wild river on the left, and a steep rock wall on the right. While all the hairpin turns might be nerve-racking to even the best drivers the beauty of the Alps and all its natural scenery make this drive well worth it!
