From Oberwald, the road climbs through a pine forest while you glimpse over the young Rhone River below. When you arrive at the village of Gletsch, the road splits between the Furka Pass to your right and the Grimsel Pass to your left. In the following kilometres, the view is extraordinary, where you will discover the spectacular Rhone Glacier, the source of the Rhone River. At the summit, a small alpine lake reflects the neighbouring peaks shining under a clear sky as the view opens towards the Bernese Alps.
