  • Susten Pass
  • Hannibal’s crossing of the Alps over 2,000 years ago was an almost impossible feat. Fortunately, it’s somewhat easier nowadays. While certain mountain pass roads remain extremely challenging, the Susten Pass is fairly straightforward to navigate. Built relatively recently (from 1938 to 1945), it takes you from the canton of @ferienregionuri to the canton of @madeinbern, where it connects directly to the Grimsel Pass. Without Hannibal’s logistical difficulties to worry about, you’ll have plenty of time to savour the beautiful views – such as this picture-postcard vista of the Stein Glacier and Steinsee captured by @yingxingdelia . Be mindful of the weather, though: the Susten Pass is normally closed in winter. After two thousand years, we still cannot master the snow. ;-)
