Pavličevo Sedlo, one of the highest Slovenian roads

Pavličevo Sedlo is a mountain pass at an elevation of 1.338m (4,390ft) above the sea level, located on the border between Slovenia and Austria.

The pass, called Paulitschsattel in German, links the Slovenian region of Lower Styria with the Austrian state of Carinthia. The road over the pass is asphalted and pretty narrow. Sometimes you drive through thick forest, other time you'll cut the villages and meadows. Fit cyclists and motorbikers love this route in nice weather. Starting from Bad Vellach, the ascent is 6.62 km long. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 462 meters. The average percentage is 6.9 %. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.
