This is Maloja pass (1862m all) It is open all year as well as it’s the only road to Bregaglia (Bergell) from Switzerland. Somebody asked why the Swiss can’t build straight roads. Would you know the answer? 馃槈 聽

Of course drones are an excellent way to capture mountain passes. However there is no need for drones. Take your time to find the best perspective:

Albula pass

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 (Palouognasee) by the Albula road. Try to find some new perspectives as it’s a pretty famous photo spot.
