Gorges de la Mescla

Taking on the Twists and Turns of Gorges de la Mescla

Gorges de la Mescla is a very scenic canyon located in the Alpes-Maritimes department, in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region of France.

Tucked away in the southeastern part of the country, the road through the gorges carved by the Tinée river, is totally paved. It’s called M2205, also known as Route de la Vallee de la Tinée.

The drive features countless tunnels dug into the rock and offers visitors a dizzying view of the emerald river. The drive is 24.1 km (14.97 miles) long, running north-south from Saint-Sauveur-sur-Tinée to the stunning Rte de Grenoble (M6202).

A balcony road is a hair-raising lane cut into the sides of sheer cliffs. It’s a kind of road not for those who fear heights, so imagine what it must have been like before the barriers.
