  • A fun ride to the top, its a tall mountain pass around 2400meter above sea. From the top its a beautiful but cold view of the whole mountain range  more »
  • A way to go to the Ticino but not the most beatiful pass in Switzerland. I prefer the Grimselpass or Furkapass. It's fir sure the less used road to go in the south alps.  more »
