L'Aiguille Percée is a rock formation at an elevation of 2.732m (8,963ft) above the sea level, located in the French Alps, in the Savoie department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France. It’s one of the highest roads of Europe.
The road to the summit, located within the Réserve Naturelle de Tignes-Champagny, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It’s a chairlift access trail. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). It’s one of the highest roads of the country. Expect a trail pretty steep. The wind is usually quite strong at mountain areas. High winds blow here all year long. Even in summer you can confront with snowy days. Temperatures here in the winter are brutally cold.
