Gemmipass-Daubensee Road

The scenic trail from Gemmipass to Daubensee

Daubensee is a high mountain lake at an elevation of 2.205 m (7,234 ft) above the sea level, located in Valais, Switzerland.

Tucked away in the Bernese Alps, the road to the lake is totally unpaved and narrow, running along the shore of the lake at the water level, to reach its northern end. The road is totally closed to vehicles.

Starting at the Gemmipass, also known as Gemmi Pass, or Gemmi Bahn, at an elevation of 2.270m (7,448ft) above the sea level, the road is 1.7km (1.05 miles) long. The road runs up into an isolated place, the place to go if you love mountains and glacial valleys. The pass is mentioned in the Sherlock Holmes story The Final Problem.
