On checking we found that this was a video shared in December by a YouTube channel named DrivingSkill. The driver is not an amateur but an expert demonstrating how to make a U-turn on a very narrow road. Upon taking a closer look, the driver was never at the edge of the cliff. There was another road beneath him and this was carefully concealed by the camera angle.
