Col du Parquétout

A bumpy paved road to the summit of Col du Parquétout

Col du Parquétout is a mountain pass at an elevation of 1.448m (4,750ft) above the sea level, located in the Isère department in southeastern France.

The road to the summit is paved but pretty bumpy and mostly narrow. It’s called D212F. The pass is 9.8 km (6.08 miles) long running from Villelonge to Les Angelas.

The road is full of turns and pretty steep, hitting a 13.3% through some of the corners. South of the pass the view is even better, with beautiful views into the valley. There’s a small rest area at the top of the pass.
