A military old road to Cima Bianca

Cima Bianca is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.977m (9,767ft) above the sea level, located in the Province of Sondrio, Lombardy region of the Alps in northern Italy, near the Swiss border. It's one of the highest roads of Europe.

The path to reach the summit is extreme, only for bikes. It’s gravel and rocky. At the summit there’s a cable car station. The path was built for military purposes during the First World War. At Bormio 2000, the road starts asphalted but turns into gravel quickly. It continues drivable for vehicles before arriving a place called La Rocca, at 2.126m above the sea level. At this point, called Chalet dei Rododendri, the road is closed to vehicles but there’s a big parking lot.

The road to the summit, located within the Stelvio National Park, is a chairlift access trail impassable from September to May. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. It's one of the highest roads of the country.
