Driving the unpaved road to Passo dei Campelli in the Italian Alps
Passo dei Campelli is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.896m (6,220ft) above the sea level, located in the Province of Bergamo in the Italian region of Lombardy.
Tucked away on the northern part of the country, the road to the summit is totally unpaved, narrow and pretty challenging. It is very steep, hitting an 18% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. This road is usually closed for snow from December to May.
Set high in the Bergamasque Alps, the pass is 6.4km (3.97 miles) long, running west-east from Strada Provinciale 294 (to the south of Passo del Vivione) to Rifugio Alpino Baita Plaurent.
