Col d'Andrion

Col d'Andrion

Col d'Andrion is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.680m (5,512ft) above the sea level, located in the Alps in the department of Alpes-Maritimes in France. The pass links Roquebillière in the Vésubie River valley and Pont de la Lune in the valley of the Tinée River.

To get the summit, from Pont de la Lune, the Col d'Andrion ascent is 24.7 km long, with an elevation gain of 1.448 meters. The average percentage is 5.9 %. The surface of the road is asphalt (in awful shape), and chains or snow tyres can be required anytime. The road is very narrow.

The road from Pont de la Lune to the pass is a large and single track. At the summit there is a former military camp called Granges de la Brasque. The road to the summit from Roquebillière is not paved most of the way.
