That's what my seat would look like too.

Wow. Compared to that the White Rim is a 4-lane freeway.

Re: Crazy Himalayan mountain bus ride

That is absolutely crazy! Who would want to drive on that road? My vertigo kicked in just watching the video. I'd rather walk than drive on that road. So what happens if there is an oncoming vehicle? Or what happens if your vehicle is too high for one of the ledges? How do you turn around? Or do you just back up all the way?

Where in the heck is this and what could be so interesting down the road that someone would want to drive it?

What a cool video. Wish we had stuff like that here.

Mac would you like to do this one, it's a bit safer...its paved.

Re: Crazy Himalayan mountain bus ride

Oh yes. Much better. I'm sure my vertigo would have a marvelous time even on that road. I'm surprised the road is in the US. I've seen pictures of some pretty scary roads in Chile and Columbia. At first I thought this might be one of those roads.

Great video,
I like to go there 1000 times more than to pack my SMB on to this ferry in Pakistan.....sometimes i think it would be a better idea to travel with a motorbike
