Col Nord des Lacs

Col Nord des Lacs is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.533m (8,310ft) above the sea level, located in the Savoie department in the Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France.

The surface of the road to the summit is rocky with lots of slippery gravel. It’s pretty steep and deserted. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. At the summit there are spectacular views and two lakes: Lac Bramant and Lac Blanc. In the far distance you can see the Glacier de St. Sorlin.
