Bellecombe is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.602m (8,536ft) above the sea level, located in the Alps on the French-Italian border. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.
The road to the summit is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It’s an access road to the Bellecombe ski lift. The peak is located between Savoie (in south-eastern France), and Aosta Valley (in northwestern Italy), to the south of the Mont Blanc Massif. 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.
