Col de Caron

Col de Caron

Col de Caron is a high mountain pass located in the Savoie department in the Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France. The road summits just next to – but not over – Col de Caron, at 2.996m (9,829ft) above the sea level. It's one of the highest mountain roads of Europe.

The road to the pass is one of the highest mountain passes drivable in Europe. The road is opened only in summers. It’s brutally tough with roughly 4 kms, on very rocky, slippery path / ski piste at occasionally impossible steepness. It's one of the highest mountain roads of the country.
