The Splügenpass (Passo dello Spulga) set on the border amongst Switzerland and Italy and is positioned at a grand altitude 2,115 m (6,939 ft.) above sea level. This is one of the highest mountain passes of Alps and the famous sequence of hairpins make this pass a chosen route among motorcyclists and cyclists. Those traveling this pass course along the SS36 road right into Lake Camo where an exquisite scenic slideshow of far off snow covered mountains and valleys becomes visible. Traveling the Swiss side can be a bit intense due to the abrupt and narrow series of hairpins - which are not signposted - so it’s important drive with care. The Italian side has a similar terrain, but the hairpins course through darkened tunnels and can be dangerous to travel when wet. There are places to stop and eat for those traveling from the south region and this pass is available for travel from June to October.
