Switzerland: Nufenen Pass
NUFENEN PASS (2478 m)
Nufenen Pass route is the highest of the "Big 5" at 2477 m, however, the road is fairly gradual in slope and quite a relaxing drive. Towards the summit there are a series of switchbacks, again giving spectacular views of the valleys below.
Lots of snow at the upper altitudes
The last of the "Big 5" Swiss mountain passes.
