IRT Deadliest Roads

About the show

Truck drivers, some of whom have appeared on the History series "Ice Road Truckers," take their extreme driving skills to much warmer climates, but the working conditions are no less treacherous in this "IRT" spinoff. In trying to prove they're the best drivers in the world, the truckers head to India to take on the extreme mountain roads of the Himalayas, where they have to navigate some of the oldest and deadliest highways in existence. The series also showcases the truckers hauling cargo in Bolivia and to sites high in Peru's Andes mountain range.

Dead Man's Canyon

Trucker Hugh Rowland takes on an old donkey trail with some dynamite during his nearly impossible climb into the Andes. The trucking team of Lisa Kelly and G.W. Boles drive head-first into “Dead Nun Canyon,” praying their truck isn’t too big for the miles and miles of hand-carved tunnels in front of them. Tim Zickuhr and Tino Rodriguez aim to take on the canyons as well... if their mishaps don’t stop them cold again.

Landslide!

The rookie team of Tino Rodriguez and Tim Zickuhr haul barrels of gasoline over roads wired with dynamite, and Tim’s ready to challenge local police to get the job done.

Freefall Freeway

Ice Road Truckers Alex Debogorski, Rick Yemm, and Lisa Kelly make a living driving the deadly ice roads of North America, but they've never seen anything like this. To prove they're the best drivers in the world, the truckers head to India to take on the extreme mountain roads of the Himalayas. As Lisa battles the heat and struggles to make the transition from Alaska, Alex slams into not one, but two vehicles out on the crowded roadways. Rick risks a head-on collision with multiple buses that refuse to give up an inch of road as they fly toward him at top speed.

Pushed To The Ledge

After surviving their first few days in India, the truckers face the most dangerous journey of their lives. Rick and Lisa go deeper into the Himalayas and up a new stretch of road called The Ledge - a one lane cliff-side path with a rock wall on one side and a sheer thousand-foot drop on the other. On the perilous journey up, Rick is bullied by local drivers, and Lisa panics while being forced to the edge of a cliff. Alabama highway trucker Dave Redmon joins the team and quickly has the most terrifying ride of his career. With one trucker already beaten by these roads, one of these three veterans may be the next to surrender.

Facing Fears

Alabama trucker Dave Redmon stares down the notorious Freefall Freeway in a truck that is in horrible need of repair. Roadside maintenance costs him valuable time and he must face driving the roads with terrifying drop-offs at night or risk being late with his very first load. Lisa heads back up to The Ledge, the narrow stretch of road that caused her to quit the last time she drove it. But this time, a flat tire leaves her teetering on the edge of the abyss. And the crowded roads finally bring Rick to the breaking point. The oncoming traffic sends him into an angry fit on the side of the road and when his greatest rival — the aggressive bus driver — attempts to pass him on a narrow stretch, Rick refuses to back down, even with oncoming traffic bearing down on them both.
