Travel video of the week: Waterfall road in Nepal

Talk about extreme. This road in Nepal is overwhelmed by a waterfall, making it more akin to a river than a road, and yet still the traffic drives on through! Sadly there’s no information given on exactly where in Nepal this is, as we would love to know more. If any of our readers can offer any insights, then please comment below. Wherever it is, we feel it should come with a “don’t try this at home” warning! Any vehicles trying to pass through must surely be at huge risk of just being washed down the mountain.

    I guess they don’t have red triangle warning signs in Nepal? If they did I’d love to see them.

    Nepal doesn’t do Health and Safety then? These guys look so chilled, just another day on the road. If this was Britain you wouldn’t get within a mile of this road. It would be cordoned off. The media would be all over it.

  3. Jane says:

    How did they construct this road? Is it just a seasonal waterfall? How does the road survive the erosion?

  4. This is one of the most extreme roadways in Nepal. It seems so challenging and so much threatening roadways that normal drivers in highway cannot cross those roadways. Everyone will be surprised seeing those kinds of roadways how do they are thinking about crossing from those waterfalls. From a local people point of view, it is just there usual schedule to go up and down if they don’t face those challenges there financial as well as basic needs wouldn’t meet. Thank you so much for sharing these kinds of information throughout this kind of global media.

    What extreme roadways, it looks so risky for any of the travelers.

    Oh my god! I’m scared just watching it. I worry about those in the vehicle. I can’t imagine having a road that crosses paths with a waterfall. Isn’t there any other way around this so people can still travel to and from the points where this road ends? So dangerous.

  7. I have been working as a trekking and tour leader in Nepal since 2000. I have not used like this road yet. I have seen this kind of road on the way to Manang and Mustang but have not driven. Just trekked which is more fun and safe.

    It’s looks like in monsoon season time in the Annapurna circuit region.

  9. Marcus Sha says:

    Looks so adventurous and dangerous as well. Where is it located? I am in confusion how they did even constructed such a roadway?

  10. Karma David says:

    It’s located below the Chhame in Manang, Nepal. It will happen during the monsoon season.

    This kind of situaton could only arise in Monsoon Season… I reckon this could have been captured while trekking to Manang region… Safe trekking!
