Design Advice - Mountain Roadway

Good Morning Folks, today I bring you a design issue i've always had. I've been a fan of mountain top villages, which are usually in some way associated with a road transfer from the plains below. I've tried long, sweeping switch backs, (picture 2) wrapping the road up the slopes parrallel to each other to gain altitude, but those are expensive, space consuming and unsightly to build. The other choice is a direct road such as I have below, which just feels treacherous and unsafe to look at. Anyone with some mountain experience have any ideas to run roads down mountains?

i feel that having winding roads, with hairpins is cool. that's what happens in real life. Your second pic looks correct, but more hairpins. Yes it is more expensive, but makes more sense too. :D
