Monte Borzalet is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.277m (7,470ft) above the sea level, located in the Aosta Valley region of north-western Italy.
The road to the summit is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. The road is usually impassable from October to May. Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road. Near the summit there’s a mountain refuge called Rifugio Frassati inaugurated in 2011, dedicated to the blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati.
