An epic road to Selle Vecchie Pass in the Alps
Colle delle Selle Vecchie is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.099m (6,886ft) above the sea level, located in the Mercantour National Park, on the French-Italian border.
The road to the summit is totally unpaved. It should not be attempted by novice drivers. Accessibility is largely limited to the summer season. 4x4 vehicle recommended. Ideal time to travel is daylight. Not advised night drive. If you're afraid of heights, it's probably best to keep your eyes forward.
The pass links the Province of Cuneo (in the Italian region Piedmont) and the Alpes-Maritimes department (in southeastern France). If you do choose this route please check up to date information.
