Located in the Alps mountain range, this infamous gravel road to the summit is bumped. It is subject to winter snowfalls with such a high summit altitude, and it can be closed anytime when the access is not cleared of snow. Make sure you get your vehicle and yourself well-prepared before driving this road.

4wd vehicle recommended. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. After rain, even a single rainfall, conditions of the road can be challenging. Watch out for sudden loose-gravel breaks. Proper preparation is essential to having a safe, enjoyable trip on this road. The pass offers fabulous views over the top and of a nearby glacier.
