Tips

  • Mi.ri.

    The Gondo Gorge is a deep incision through which Diveria flows between the hamlet of Gabi in the municipality of Simplon Dorf and Gondo in the Swiss canton of Valais.
    The Gondo Gorge is about 5 km long. Their slopes are so steep that the gorge could not be crossed at the time of the mule-men. Instead, the hemmers from Gabi marched over the Furggu [2] (pass) into the Zwischenbergental and from there down to Gondo. It was only on Napoleon's orders that a road was built over the Simplon Pass and through the Gondo Gorge in 1801–1805.

    Route with many dark tunnels. Avoid with the racing bike!
