Col des Vaux

Travel guide to the top of Col des Vaux

Col des Vaux is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.705m (8,874ft) above the sea level, located in the district of Entremont in the canton of Valais in Switzerland. It's one of the highest roads of Europe.

The trail to the top is extreme. It’s very narrow. It can be closed anytime due the snow. It’s a rough trail. It's one of the highest roads of the country. The trail to the top starts in Verbier. It’s very steep with sudden loose-gravel breaks. The road is winding, in some places only wide enough for one vehicle, and in many places bordered by a drop of hundreds of meters (many hundreds of feet) unprotected by guardrails. Words can’t describe the road and pictures don’t do it justice.
