This looked like one hell of a road, so I had to do a bit of research about it. I found this out from http://www.dangerousroads.org/norway/76-lysebotn-road-norway.html (and there are some other impressive and frightening roads on this site, it’s worthwhile having a look!) The photo is from the also impressive site of http://lori-rocks.tumblr.com/
“The popular tourist road Lysevegen in Forsand in Ryfylke (FV500) goes from Lysebotn innermost in the Lysefjord to Sirdal. This is an impressive road in the high mountains of Rogaland and Vest Agder - highest point 932 metres - some of it single carriageway with passing places - with impressive scenery and weather.
Lysebotn is a village of the municipality of Forsand at the Lysefjord in Rogaland county in the southwest of Norway.
It opens in May, and closes in October/November (depending on snow conditions). Both dates are selected by the weather, not by people - sometimes it can be quite late in May before the snow ploughs finish their work, and you can still see snow well into the summer.
The road is not small business. It is a long road, twisting and turning the whole way down. People must take their time and be exceedingly careful driving this endlessly winding road or they will surely take a Rapid Advance hundreds of meters down, in the most dangerous of ways. It would be impossible to own a business or even get a small business loan on the other side of this road as the road is closed for sometimes over half the year, every year, making it impossible to run a small business even if able to get a small business loan.
The road going down to Lysebotn haa 32 sharp curves, a drop of 800 height metres on the last 8 kilometres (0.5 miles). The last 1.1 kilometer (0.7 miles) is driving through a steep 340 degree curved tunnel also with three switchbacksinside, called Lysetunnelen. This is the view 900 meters down, once you get on top. The highest point on the road is by Andersvatn lake, 950 metres above sea level.”
