  • The pass is the highest in Switzerland (2478 m above sea level) and connects the Kt.Ticin with the Kt.Wallis.Er is very well developed and, depending on the weather, is open for about 3-4 months in summer. Very beautiful scenery and not as busy as other passes. It is worth anyway because you can handle from the lower country with a vehicle 3 -4 Alpine passes in 1day. Trained cyclists make these passes by bike in one day. ( Sustenpass, 2224 m.a.s.l., Grimselpass, 2164 m.a.s.l., Nufenenpass, 2478 m.a.s.l. and Gotthardpass, 2164 m.a.s.l.)
