Grimsel Pass :
Coming from Interlaken , Grimsel Pass crosses the Bernese Alps at 2,164 meters above sea level and is located in the upper Rhone Valley. It is a 38 kilometers long steep winding road that has some incredible views of rocks, mountains, and lakes.
Grimsel Pass is known to be one of the world’s most insane roads. It is tightly hair-pinned and bumped, an exquisite winding mountain drive with sharp and blind curves and hairpin switchbacks leading to the sweeping views of Rhone Glacier. The pass road runs through a wild, sparsely grown mountainous region marked by granite rocks, reservoir lakes, and power plants. Also in the area there’s the Grimsel Test Site, used for research into underground radioactive waste disposal. Here is the amazing landscape you will see when you drive through Grimsel Pass:
