8. The Seven Mile Bridge Along the water of the Florida Keys, you’ll found The Seven Mile Bridge. The bridge connects Knight’s Keys to Little Duck Keys, constructed back in 1909 and completed by 1912. It measures 6.8 miles or 10,887.5 meters long-- so just nearly seven miles. The bridges cross the Moser Channel in the Keys. There’s actually two bridges, one exclusively for pedestrians or those on bikes, and the other expressly for vehicles.
7. Khardung La Pass (car dong la or cardzong la) This mountain pass can be found through the Ladakh region of India. The elevation of the mountain pass stands at 17,582 feet or 5,359 meters high. It is not the highest motorable pass in the world, despite what all the tourist souvenirs say that you can buy here. Khardung La is located along the caravan route that leads into Central Asia, a historically significant path where 10,000 camels and horses used to travel through every year centuries ago.
6. Capulin Volcano Road This road winds around the Capulin Volcano part of the National Monument of the same name, located in northeastern New Mexico in the United States. The paved road is open to visitors who want to drive all the way to the parking lot at the rim of the volcano. It has an area of 993 acres and an elevation of 8.182 feet or 2,494 meters high. The last time the volcano erupted was said to be between 58,000 to 62,000 years ago.
5. The July 9 Avenue Known in Spanish as Avenida 9 de Julio, this beautiful road can be found in the capital city of Buenos Aires, Argentina and is the widest avenue in the entire world. The name comes from the date of Argentina’s independence day. The road consists of seven lanes not just in total but seven lanes that go in each direction. It runs about 0.62 miles or 1 kilometer west of the Rio de la Plata. Plans went as far back as 1888 though construction didn’t start until decades later in 1935.
4. The China-Pakistan Friendship Highway Also known more commonly as the Karakoram Highway or the National Highway 35, this highway runs through China and Pakistan, starting in the Punjab province of Pakistan, turning into the China National Highway when it crosses past. It has a length of 800 miles or 1,300 kilometers. It has been around since 1966 though it wasn’t not completed until 1979 and only opened to be public in 1986. It ranks as one of the highest paved roads in the world and proves as a popular tourist attraction.
3. Route 1 This road connects all the inhabited parts of iceland to each other, with a length of 828 miles or 1,332 kilometers. Most of the highway only has two lanes and has a speed limit of of 55 miles per hour or 90 kilometers per hour. It takes a week to drive through the entire route during the summer. But being in Iceland, it would take two weeks to drive through during the wintertime.
2. Le Passage du Gois This road in France periodically become flooded, often being called the disappearing road. Le Passage du Gois leads to the island of Noirmoutier in France between that is;and the Beauvoir sur Mer. Twice a day the passage gets flooded with the water. During the Tour de France in 1999, the passage was used as part of the route, proving to be a treacherous obstacle for the race. It spans a length of 4.125 kilometers long. In case anyone gets stuck in the water, rescue towers line the route.
1. The North Yungas Road Eerily called the Road of Fate, this road located in the Yungas region of Bolivia and spans 35 miles or 56 kilometers from La Paz to Coroico. It’s mostly a single lane road that has very little guard rails, which just doesn’t seem safe being up 2,000 feet or 600 meters. And while it proves extremely dangerous, that aspect of the Yungas Road was also what made it so popular, most especially drawing in tourists during the 90s.

We’ve seen wonderful lists of the most creative, bizarre and quirky houses and they’re truly a marvel to see, but today it’s all about location, location, location! We put on our hiking boots, pack our backpacks and go traveling to some of the strangest places on earth where people have built their homes. Subscribe to Talltanic 13 - Home grown… Before we knew too much about turning our homes into eco-friendlier versions of their selves, Icelanders were already far ahead of the game. They use the earth’s natural dirt to insulate their homes, which means once the grass starts growing, you’re blending in with the landscape beautifully. Also bear in mind that building materials are not easy to come by in more remote areas, so this is the perfect solution. By owning one of these homes, you’ll blend right in. 12 - Ready for Take Off… This Boeing 727 Hotel in Costa Rica is located deep in the heart of the jungle. So not only are you heading into the seriously awesome location of a jungle, but you can also brag that you’ve overnighted in a disused airplane flew from South Africa to Columbia once upon a time. Many amazing conversions have taken place in old aircraft, from restaurants, to homes, hotels and even a kindergarten. 11 - Rock On… Over in Utah you’ll find homes that have been blasted into a rock wall that form part of the Rockland Ranch Community. Around 100 people live there, and the area was founded 35-years ago. 10 - Cliff Hanger… Although Xuan Kong Si is actually a Monastery, I’ve added it to our list today – because technically, it is home to the monks that reside there. This particular mountain is considered sacred, and the Monastery in Mid Air – which is what Xuan Kong Si translated means – has been hanging there since 491 AD. To this day, architects are in awe of how they managed to get these dwellings to hang like this off the side of the cliff. They do know how it was done, but it’s remarkable they were able to do so. They were built high up as either a defence mechanism against marauders, or to protect themselves from floods. 9 - Home is where the heart is… This big house is located on Elliðaey Island, Vestmannaeyjar Archipelago in Iceland. An incredible view from above, but you’ll never be allowed to visit there. It was built in the 1700’s and at that time 5 families lived on the island. The house is now owned by a hunting club and you have to be a member to get there. They don’t have electricity but fortunately they do have a sauna. 8 - Oh, the places you’ll go… Over in Northern England these treehouses served as a form of protest. The residents of the treehouses built them to prevent authorities from quarrying for gritstone in the historic Nine Ladies Sit in Stanton Lees. 7 - Time to go home… This is the Brooklyn Clock Tower Home and it’s got a hefty price tag attached to it. It costs $15 million and offers the lucky owners a view of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. It’s 6, 813-square-foot and at one stage was bring rented out for $50, 000 a month! 6 - Welcome Home… Built in the 1700’s, let’s take a walk around Yemen’s Dar al-Hajar palace. The more modern part on top of the hill was built in the 1930’s by Yahya Muhammad Hamiddin, an Islamic Spiritual leader. The rooms of the palace are built into the side of a tall rock spire and you can buy a ticket and walk through this 5-story rock palace. 5 - The house of the rising sun… Although it’s uninhabited, this is just worth a share because it’s so bizarre. It’s known as the Floating Castle near Krasnosilka in Ukraine, and is actually an abandoned granary. 4 - Home is where you lay your hat… We head to Tunisia and pop in for tea at Matmâta. Thought to date back to the Roman times, inhabitants have dug these monstrous pits into the ground and tunnelled into the sides to create their living space. Nobody really knew about this place until the mid-60’s and that was thanks to the Star Wars film, A New Hope, where Luke Skywalker made his home on the planet Tatooine. Why they are built like this is not certain, but it could possibly have been to hide from the Egyptians or some like to believe that desert monsters used to live in those underground tunnels. 3 - Head for the hills… Admittedly, it’s not a house but a hotel, but the location is most certainly surreal! The Solvay hut is located at 13, 000 feet on the Matterhorn in Zermatt, Switzerland. It offers a resting place for weary hikers! 2 - House on a hill… In this case, it would be more of a case of house in a hill. This was the creation of SeARCH and Christian Muller Architects, and the entire home is built into a hill. The shape allows for lots of natural light to filter into the home, exquisite panoramic views and loads of shelter. 1.
