A cousin of the Col de la Loze, this demanding climb offers few moments of respite, but the view over the whole of the 3 Vallées from the top of the pass is breathtaking! The route starts at the Piou-Piou village in Les Menuires.

In the near future, it will even be possible to reach Méribel on the other side. In the meantime, this is an out-and-back route.

A little surprise: at the pass, you'll find a high-altitude restaurant, open in season.
