Sanetsch From Conthey

Conthey, Wallis, Switzerland

Sightseeing - New - Mountain

At 25km in length and with a difference in altitude of 1770m, the pass road could be compared to the famous Stelvio, but with less traffic. The ascent starts in the Rhone valley and meanders through the vineyards (Valais is Switzerland’s largest wine-producing canton by volume) before reaching woodland and a series of hairpin bends which lead to pastures and the summit (alt. 2252m) near the Tsanfleuron glacier. The road stops at Sanetsch Lake, a few kilometres on from the summit.
