Road Type Mountain Pass
The Albula Pass / Swiss Graubunden Alps
A wild pass, with a wonderful tight run up through the meadows before the valley quickly opens to some beautiful sweepers and breathtaking peaks.
On the north ramps views of the glacier express and some of the wonderful viaduct bridges this amazing railway line runs along. This is a very unspoiled pass, in particular the rugged section through the woods on the ascent to Naz.
At the summit of the pass, close to 2400M, you really do feel that you are on a luna landscape, and the plateaux swweps some 5 KM directly out in front of you, before starting the descent, this particular stretch is really what a dream road is all about!
The ascent on the south sie can be quite steep bumpy ramp down that quickly becomes tight and twisty as you plunge into the lush forests of the valley, before heading down onto the Engadin valley, from where you have direct access to the resort of St Moritz - where better to stop for an evening to let the experience sink in a little.
