Unpaved, the Lena motorway connecting Siberia and Russia's capital of Yakutsk is a narrow, bumpy dirt road. This place became an obsession for the drivers who used to go through it and were called by the scary name "hell highway". Photo: Antykomunista.

The road stretches 1,212 km without any section of the asphalt or concrete road. The underlying reason was not due to lack of construction funds but because of weak ground, not sustainable enough to spread asphalt. Photo: Brainparking.

In the summer, under the temperature of 32-35 degrees Celsius with continuous heavy rain, Lena completely flooded in thick and loose mud. The whole road turned into bogs where no vehicles could move normally here. This road can engulf hundreds of cars in a traffic jam. Photo: Earthtripper.

This is also the road where there are historical bottlenecks when thousands of cars line up nearly 100 km long. However, because it is the only route connecting Siberia and Yakutsk, if you want to move between these two regions, you do not have any other options. Photo: Lugares Fantásticos.

Locals often tell the rare story of Lena traffic jam many years ago. A pregnant woman gave birth on a bus when she couldn't make it to the hospital due to traffic jams. Ambulance and paramedics had no way to reach the car because of the mud. Photo: Kremlinrus.

In the winter, the horror is somewhat lessened. When the weather gets cold, the mud hardens, the roads become dry, making transportation easier. Vehicles can travel at a speed of about 70 km / h. Photo: 2ch.

Yakutsk is one of the coldest places in the world with a large temperature difference between winter and summer. During the winter lasting 10 months, the temperature plummeted, freezing cold. Vehicles on the move are also often stalled. Winter or summer, Lena Boulevard is also one of the dangerous and scary roads. Photo: Dangerous roads and bridges.
