Just terrible story. Only four survivors… words fail.

I used to worry about similar bus incidents when I rode on the buses in the Nepali Himalayas. If I was adventurous I sat with some other people on the top of the bus and we could look over the edge of the roads down into the ravines. Sometimes the cliffs on the opposite side of the road came so close to our heads that we all ducked. Pakistan, northern India, and Bhutan are scary for transportation. This bus accident comes shortly after the airline accident in Pokhara in Nepal and reminds us of the dangers of transportation, especially on third world roads.

Maybe, but can you even think of turning a bus around on a dirt road high up in the Himalayas like the dude in the video below attempts?
