Definitely for the "young at heart" and "adventurous" type. We are neither one!
I am not EVEN watching this video ! I can see from just the picture that this is NOT for me . I hate heights, don’t even get on a step stool. Bobby changes all lightbulbs.
Of course, Bobby is tall enough that he does not even need a step stool to change the light bulb.
I've never been to the Himalayas, but the video reminded me of a similar trip I once took through the Andes. Absolutely terrifying! Although the road was 2-way when I traveled it, I saw on one of the travel shows that it is now one way on alternating days, as so many people were killed on it. A full bus going over the edge convinced the government that the roadway needed to be uni-directional. We also took small vehicles back into remote areas to conduct TB clinics, and often encountered washed-out spots. Some of us would have to walk back to the nearest village and recruit enough men to fill the washout so we could go on. I was much younger then and I don't think I could handle it now.
Yep, the Andes roads were scary (I think the only thing that saved us was how hard I chewed my fingernails) but the bus ride I took over the mountains in India last year definitely aged me 10 years. The drop-off was bad enough but the cars playing "chicken" with the bus when passing......zowie!!
I might would take the ride but I absolutely would not be leaning out that side of the bus.
The scenery is spectacular.
I wouldn't even want to live next door to a house that had that video in its library!
That is insane!
