Landmark
Col de la Bonette is a high mountain pass in the French Alps, near the border with Italy. It is approximately 2,715 m (8,907 ft) high. It is situated within the Mercantour National Park on the border of the departments of Alpes-Maritimes and Alpes-de-Haute-Provence. The road is the seventh highest paved road in the Alps.

You will see a signpost at the foot of the climb which reads "Col de la Bonette- 2802 m above sea level, highest road in Europe". This claim is incorrect for various reasons. It is, however, the highest asphalted road in France and is the highest through road in Europe.

  • More than the (exceptional) 360 degree view from the top of the table of orientation to the Summit of the Bonette, is the road that goes down to the Bonette to Jausiers in the Ubaye Valley that it would be unforgivable not to see. It's... indescribable. One of the most beautiful landscapes I could admire. I go as often as possible, it is impossible to get tired of such beauty.

  • The landscapes are more beautiful than the other. This pass is just clothes and the view is crazy at the top. The weather was great and down we dive fuck and our other day of a stream and its stunning mountains. We even saw marmots!
