3 of the most dangerous, haunted roads in the Philippines

Urban legend or not, there are certain roads in the Philippines that many believe to be haunted.

Many travelers and local citizens have had their own spine-chilling experiences while passing by these roads, and each individual story has added to the larger myth.

With Halloween lurking around the corner, there's no better time to wink wink travel down memory lane, and take a look at three of the most dangerous, haunted roads in the country:

1. Balete Drive, Quezon City

The story of a white lady haunting Balete Drive in Quezon City has been circulating for decades now. Legend has it that a woman died in a crash there years ago and that she has been trying to hitch a ride on the cars that pass by so she can find her way home.

2. Loakan Road, Baguio City

Just by the looks of it, you might not want to be by yourself when passing through Loakan Road in Baguio City.

According to the personal experience of a taxi driver, retold by ironwulf.net, he was passing by the infamous road at night when he suddenly felt chills all over his body.

When he turned to look at his passenger seat, a woman was sitting there. He tried to reach for his light, but the lady said, "'Wag niyo po buksan ang ilaw. Parang away niyo na po, ihatid niyo po ako sa siyudad."

The driver stepped on his gas and sped off the road. The minute he was off Loakan, the lady disappeared.

3. Malinta Tunnel, Corregidor Island

Corregidor Island has had its fair share of haunted stories, in part due to the huge role it played in World War II, but the Malinta Tunnel in particular is perhaps the most famous haunted area on the island.

Among the legends, as reported in Amyscrypts, is that visitors often hear multiple voices echoing in the tunnel, even when no one is around. Sometimes, there are screams of terror — as if people are "trapped" in the tunnel. It was known that many soldiers died in that location during the war.

Would you dare pass these roads by yourself? Just make sure that you have the guts to stand by your decision like Donna Suarez (Kim Chiu) in "U-Turn," a journalist who tried to investigate the gruesome deaths that took place in a cursed U-turn slot.
