A challenging drive up a mountain road so not for the faint hearted or nervous driver but well worth the visit. A Mecca for cyclists and a stunning part of the world.

Drive up to the col, walk or bike up! The views are amazing. Sometime you can find lamas up there and always sheep. In winter the col is shut for the ski resort to operate. Fabulous views in winter!

Must do! Very nice climb up the hill with phenomenal views. Important to realise there are a lot of cars/motors going up as well. At least 2 people are taking photos on the way up so if needed you can order a picture online.
