Col du Télégraphe

Col du Telegraphe is a mountain pass in the French Alps located in Graian Alps. Col du Telegraphe is a high mountain pass with a peak elevation of 1,566m. It is a popular pass which has featured in the Tour de France. The completely sealed road is wide with safe width for passing oncoming vehicles. There can be considerable traffic on this pass as it is a popular tourist destination and as this pass links to the Col du Galibier. The scenery isn’t as spectacular on this pass, as there is a lot of tree cover which blocks a lot of the views. The road is very enjoyable to drive with several hairpins and sweeping bends. The pass is quite short in length compared to the other passes. Overall it’s quite an enjoyable drive and worth driving on the route to Col du Galibier..
