  • In Switzerland I found myself thanks to a tourist office. I went a little into the unknown, because so far I have not used the services of the tourist office. The Tour wore the title: A tour of three passes. In the bulletin advertising the tour you can find the most beautiful and highest road in Switzerland. When I added to this the results displayed if it is on the uncle Google or YT (very quickly can be found-the whole series of videos or pictures full of legitimate Ohów and Ahów...)-The winding of the zenith. The mandatory information for Nufenen can be reached by bus, and there is parking on site. Well, when I walked out of the coach, my eyes appeared to Nufenen-Passhöhe (Gospoda) and it was almost everything I could see through the fog... The pass itself is similar to our native Fig heights (2478 m. P. m support as usual a program for maps from the Czech Republic). The visibility was so bad (I refer to the pictures), that standing next to the cross, or tiles with the panorama of the Lepontine Alps I could barely see the inn, or parking, and it's rap with 20-30m... How many meters of lake I could see – also refer to the photo... On the spot there were intermediate points for cyclists (described more precisely in another review from the Swiss Alps), their way to prepare a whole year for the race and on the right day the weather makes you such a trick... The temperature for sewing was close to zero, I hope that the cyclists were prepared for such a temperature difference... The profession and disappointment was a little, maybe once again I will manage to visit the Nufenen Pass with good visibility...
