Argo Gede Train Railroad, Indonesia

From series “The most dangerous railroads in the world”
Extremely popular with the tourists is the Indonesian train Argo Gede that travels back and forth between Bandung and Jakarta. The route cuts through the incredibly beautiful places, passengers can enjoy vast tea plantations and mountain scenery during their trip, as well as observe tiny villages and rice fields. However, such a calming and relaxing scenery changes unexpectedly when the train enters the high iron Cikurutug bridge.

Its confident journey through this sector is not supported at all, the bridge is unfenced. Not all passangers dare to look through the window at this railway track section. Although modern designers argue about the complete safety of the bridge, crashes occurring indicate the opposite. The last major accident on the Cikurutug bridge occurred in 2002, when a part of the train derailed. But, miraculously, everyone survived. Next - Chennai-Rameswaram Route
