Swiss Passes

Col du Pillon

Vaud

Col du Pillon is one of the least exciting drives over the Swiss Passes but makes up for it with a dramatic zenith. Making up part of the route from Aigle in canton Vaud to Gstaad in canton Berne the Col du presents an often spectacular landscape as the route is overlooked by the glaciers and mountains like the strikingly angular Sommet des Diablerets.
