The Passo dello Spluga is an international high mountain pass, at an elevation of 2.115m (6,939ft) above the sea level, on the border between Switzerland and Italy. It’s one of thehighest asphalted roads of the Alps. Hairpins and great views make this one to see and drive. It’s one of the famous hairpinned roads in the world. The pass links the Swiss Hinterrhein valley and Splügen in the canton of Graubünden with the Valle Spluga and Chiavenna in the Italian province of Sondrio. The road traversing the pass, the SS36, continues to Lake Como. Near the top, some incredible views of the distant snow covered peaks and valleys become visible. The pass was already in use in the Roman era. This pass has a high regard among cyclists, mostly because of the difficult and exciting south side. There are water and restaurants on the south side, if you need to stop.
