That is so cool. If I'd known about that I would have taken the 50 kilometer detour on my trip to Andorra a couple of years ago, as I drove south on A66 / N20.

The road is this one:
http://goo.gl/maps/hEQUU

but in Google maps it's simplified and sometimes wrong. Openstreetmap's more accurate:
http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=45...om=16&layers=M

You probably drove this one:
http://goo.gl/maps/2rXVW

which is nice, but not as fascinating as the other one

I'm not really a "local". I discovered this road by sheer chance, we just wanted to get to Pieve di Tremosine for a hike and GPS showed us this route.

Next time you are near Garda lake, you could get off your bike and walk the "Strada del Ponale" from Riva to Biacesa di Ledro. It was a road until mid '90s when a tunnel bypass opened. Now it's an amazing foot-bicycle path:

Swiss Alps and Slovenian Alps are quite different

True, but not all Swiss mountains are high enough to have glaciers, and there is snow in our mountains most of the year. What do you mean with morphology of valleys?

Come on, I was only joking. Apart from putting a dozen emoticon, I don't know how to render the tone.

I don't know what to say, but I would never mix up Switzerland and Slovenia. They are different, they feel different. I'm not saying I prefer one or the other.

Ok, I thought we were talking about Alpine landscape (because most of Switzerland indeed looks like that photo).
