the world's most spectacular roads

Laghi di Cedèc

Laghi di Cedèc is a high mountain lake at an elevation of 2.833m (9,294ft)  above the sea level, located in the northern Italian province of Sondrio. It's one of the highest roads in Europe.

The road to the summit, located within the Parco Nazionale dello Stelvio, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It’s totally impassable in winters. Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point.
It’s one of the highest roads of the country. 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. The surface of the road is really bad for 1.4km past the Rifugio Pizzini, at 2.706m (8,877ft) above the sea level. The road is open only to authorized vehicles. 
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. With such a high summit altitude the road can be closed anytime due to snowfalls. The zone is prone to heavy mist and can be dangerous in low visibility conditions.
