the world's most spectacular roads

Passo dei Salati

Passo dei Salati is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.988m (9,803ft) above the sea level, located on the border between Piedmont and Val de Aosta, in Italy. It’s one of the highest roads of Europe.

The road to the summit, located in the Alps, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It’s a chairlift access trail. The road is impassable from October to June (weather permitting). Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 vehicle 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 pass lies between Val Sesia and Valle di Gressoney.
The summit is also known as Colle Inferiore de Pisse. High winds blow here all year long. Even in summer you can confront with snowy days. Temperatures here in the winter are brutally cold. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.
