Himalayan bus ride lines edge of mountain

Bus ride through Himalayas brings meaning to "life on the edge" (Courtesy: IVan Budimir Facebook)

AUSTIN (KXAN) — This bus ride’s not for the faint of heart, as this trip takes things to great heights.

It’s an adrenaline-packed ride through the Himalayan Mountains and one that’s most definitely fear-inducing as the bus treks through the rough terrain on the edge of an extremely steep drop. At one point, a tour guide even has to get out of the bus to guide the driver through a narrow passage that’s tough to navigate.

There is a refreshing point in the video: when the bus drives right through a cascading waterfall on the mountainside.

Here’s your geography refresher: The Himalayas is a mountain range in Asia separating the plains of the Indian subcontinent from the Tibetan Plateau, according to Wikipedia.

The Himalayan range is home to the planet’s highest peaks, including the well-known Mount Everest.
