Do you consider yourself an expert in the art of U-turning when you missed that road you needed to go down? What if you needed to turn around on a narrow mountain road?

This expert driver demonstrates a very dangerous U-turn on a road barely wide enough for his van. He’s stuck between a mountain face on one side and a sheer cliff drop on the other.

Carefully shifting between forward and reverse gears, the driver moves the car inches at a time. His driving skill is unmatched as the front end kisses the rocks without damaging the vehicle.

As the turn progresses, the back tires get closer and closer to the edge every time he puts the van in reverse. It looks as if they’ll go over the cliff about halfway through the turn.

It is a heart-stopping moment when those rear tires creep off the solid ground. Nevertheless, the driver has complete control of the vehicle and doesn’t allow it to fall off the edge.

As you start to see the light at the end of the tunnel, the driver stays calm and collected, not letting excitement get the better of him. He continues to make precise movements with the van.

Finally, he has enough clearance to drive down the road. Meanwhile, you realize you’ve been holding your breath the whole time. You were probably freaking out more than the driver!
