Switzerland: St Gotthard Pass

ST GOTTHARD PASS (2091 m)

Heading south on Route 2 from Hospental towards Airolo you will find my favorite drive of the "Big 5" Swiss mountain passes. But, you have to take the old route known as The Tremola. The road is paved in cobblestones and the turns and switchbacks are unbelievable.

Another "Big 5" Summit




We only stayed at the summit for a short time to look around and walk through the small museum, then it was off through the fog, down the long winding road to Hospental.


We came across a group of stage-coach travelers along the way. I can't imagine being in that over the cobblestone roads on the other side of the summit.


Feeling very satisfied with the journey on the old route over St Gotthard's Pass.

My favorite of the "Big 5".
