Before Winter closing of most Alpine passes, here is to you a report of 120 km driving through the most majestic Alpine district of central Switzerland (map adapted from Google Earth).
Enjoy the first part: at dawn from Hospental to Furkapass!
Realp is the last town left behind before the road, closed in winter, turns into a steep uphill.
Leaving Furkapass behind, the next stop is by Hotel Belvedere. In front of it: the Rhone Glacier, soon in part 2
