  • My car was frozen through the night, first freeing windows, then briefly opening the air conditioning until all the windows are free. Before the pass, briefly refueled again and then opened the roof. The sun shone even when it was still cold. So hoodie, seat heating on and sunglasses on. Curve by curve high, always towards the sun. Up to the pass height, there rested, pictures taken and enjoyed the peace. Just wonderful, I wonder how you can only drive the tunnel in such a weather.

  • Beautiful and at the same time a simple pass. At the very top of the pass is a lot of pyramids of stone - in the fog these pyramids look very mystical

  • Less traffic even on weekend. Nice hiking routes from the top of the pass. It was a nice driving experience.
  • Great views up here. Reward for cyclists in particular is the long downhill all the way to Bellinzona.
