Jagged turns and steep inclines off cliff sides 12,000 feet above sea level make for an average mountain. Now, add some water, and you’ve got the makings for a wild off-roading experience.
This 59-mile-long terror, called the Annapurna Circuit, runs across the Marsyangdi River, which is vulnerable to torrents of water amidst heavy rainfall during the rainy season from June to September.
Starting from Besishar at 2,330 feet above sea level up to Manang, 12,000 feet above sea level, its widest portion is roughly the width of a standard 4×4 (no more than three meters wide).
Now, who wants to set the record for the “bravest act in world history” by executing the longest drift from opposite ends of the curve?
