The Tanggula pass is traversed also by a road, that reaches the altitude of 5231m:

North side of Colle delle Finestre (2176 m) road. It connects Susa (Val di Susa) and Usseaux - Fenestrelle (Val Chisone) in Piedmont, Italy. North side is 25 km long, climbs 1500 m and last 8 km, visible here, are unpaved:

Falzarego Pass



Grossglockner













Hochkönigstrasse



Sölk Pass





Turracher Höhe



Nockalm Road



Will share some more photos of other passes I did if people like?

They look more like pictures of cars than roads... are you involved in any way with Audi marketing?
Pictures are nice, anyway

Maybe not an Alpine pass but a very spectacular mountain road in Spain: Sierra Nevada!

We were extremely lucky with the clouds in the valley and the sun above it. But even when its cloudy it is a spectacular road. This part here:

A few passes in Switzerland, Italy I really like:

Fluelapass:



Ofenpass:



Stelvio pass:



Little avalanche blocking our way:



Where I must say that from the view the Stelvio is the most spectacular, but the Fluela and Ofenpass are much nicer to drive!

Predel/Predil Pass (1,156 m), Italy/Slovenia. Going from Italy to Slovenia here means going from the Alpine to the Mediterranean world (you'd expect the other way around).

A lesser known yet very scenic corner of Switzerland: Lake Klöntal (canton of Glarus).
The photos show Klöntalerstrasse from Glarus to the lake and then along its northern shore to Vorauen (other end).

Troubling to see that this thread is being abused for car advertising.
