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.

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.
