Suisse Mountain Passes

Mountain Passes are simply a route through a mountain range or over a ridge. The passes are not always the highest part of the mountain, or the Peak,  the pass is the way for you to cross. Mountains have been hard to get through or over for centuries so over time routes have been made. These routes have led to the creation of some of the most amazing driving roads in the worlds with the best scenery. We have made a list of some Mountain Passes below for you to look through. The are not the highest in the world, however all have special features and are worthy of the trip to cross. We hope you get to travel across these Passes and enjoy them as much as we do. Why not send in your pictures to share with others, or if you feel you know of any better Mountain passes that we may have left off, let us know and we will add it to the site for others to experience.
