The biggest ascend! 1560 meters, the majority on the first few kilometers. From Surava, after waiting out another round of rain, I went up the #albulapass. My host did not have high hopes, that I would make it. But of course I did. It's just a matter of taking your time. The first kilometers to Berg√ľn were quite steep, or actually not too steep but looking at the side of the road was a bit shocking. It went down and down. After Preda came the beautiful Lai da Palpuogna and then the trees slowly disappeared and at 2,312 m they were all gone. Very beautiful pass and glad that I decided for this one. After the pass it went downhill, literally and for quite some time. After a closed road and a detour I finally got to my bed and slept well.

Far more relaxed than the Albula pass. But actually a stunner. Beautiful views left and right. When I entered Scuol, I expected nothing. But when I reached the bridge with the view on the church and the Inn... I was standing there for several minutes, not able to believe that what I see is actually real.
