Col de Portes de Culet – Legendary Mountain Passes
The Col des Portes de Culet rises to 1,787 metres and offers an exceptional view over the Dents du Midi. Leaving from Monthey, the first few kilometres take you up the road to the Pas de Morgins before turning right onto a small road criss-crossing the pastures.

Leaving from Monthey, the start of the climb leads to the right side of the "Illiez" valley. From the village of Troistorrents, several switchbacks help you gain some altitude to take a look at the magnificent church in this small village in the Val d’Illiez. The road then forks to the right and becomes more narrow. The road takes you to the summit of the Portes de Culet in the middle of alpine meadows typical of the region. The relaxing ambience of the area is simply magical!
