Highest open mountain pass in the Alps – was closed last year

There is a gravel road going from here – might be difficult. High mountain terrain… …internet is not very clear about the difficulty and how far you can get.

Alternative
Road said to have some big stones – some visible in the video

No real pass, just a high point touched by the road

Loneliest place on earth…
