On a clear cloud free day this road has spectacular views. We travelled west - east and thoroughly our trip. Allow at least two hours to enjoy especially when the weather is bright as it brings a lot of visitors out! Amazing!

Revisited Furka Pass after 29 years. The pass at an elevation of 2,429m has great views of the mountains and valleys around. It is also location of the Rhone Glacier.
