This pass connects Engadin with the rest of Switzerland. It’s probably the most instagrammable road in Switzerland:
Julier pass (2284m asl) is open all year. In winter it’s the only road connecting Engadin with the rest of Switzerland.
This is Maloja pass (1862m asl). It is open all year as well as it’s the only road to Bregaglia (Bergell) from Switzerland.
Drones are an excellent way to capture mountain passes. However there is no need for drones. Find the this perspective of the Maloja road on the map
In summer, Albula pass (2312m asl) is a great alternative to Julier pass. It connects the Albula valley with Engadin.
Don’t miss Lake Palpuogna (Palpouognasee) by the Albula road. Try to find some new perspectives as it’s a pretty famous photo spot.
If you like street photography then Klausenpass (1948m asl) is for you. It connects the cantons Glarus and Uri.
This pass takes longer, but is more fun than the Gotthard tunnel.
