Ma’ale Akrabim

Ma’ale Akrabim in Hebrew means Scorpions Pass. It’s a steep twisted section of Route 227 (Northern Negev, not far from Dimona).
Map of the area:

I remember Trollstigen in Norway. It’s known due to its steep incline and eleven hairpin bends up a steep mountainside. Well, Trollstigen has good marketing. I’ve drove on other less known and much more dangerous roads. With more hairpin bends and steeper inclines. Ma’ale Akrabim is one of them.
