This is an amazing spot to stand particularly if on top of one of the La Thuile ski trails. On a clear day Monte Bianco and the alpine ridge can be seen for ever with the clearly distinct peak of the Matterhorn in the distance. I have to admit though that I've only ever been there when it's covered in snow but some of the old frontier fort ruins can evoke glimpses of another time. The only spoiler for that perfect picture post card scene is the fairly significant hydro electric line and towers that bring nuclear generated electricity into Italy. They cut right across the pass.

Summer or Winter this is a great location - In the winter the road is closed and you have to ski.

Fantastic views - and some good places to stop for a meal or a drink (summer and winter).

Having read the previous review we always intended to do this walk on our visit to La Thuile.

Our first attempt failed before it started as the car park at the bottom was full- I recommend avoiding weekends in the summer.

We ended up doing the walk on our last day and we shared the falls with only a handful of people which was lovely.

The falls were raging when we visited which may have been because of all the snow which still hadnt melted.

We recommend taking the excursion on path 7 up to Belvedere as it gives great views of fall two and three and is only 15 mins to the top.

Great walk, lovely views but for the higher falls you will definitely need good boots and walking poles helped too.

On a very cold day for skiing this was a nice place to warm up and to have lunch. The size of the pasta-dish was a little bit small my boys thougt. The lentil soup was pretty good!

.......albeit on skis. After years driving around the Alps from resort to resort I now understand why I have never driven across it!!! Great skiing though, and wonderful views.

We drove over the pass from the French side and back again. Hairy driving at times but doable with care. Absolutely stunning scenery

Out of the way but worth it. Authentic food or the basics, whichever is required. Worth a visit. Try the rabbit, delicious.

We skied down to San Bernardo, beautiful ski runs and a lovely cafe at the bottom. Coffees were gorgeous and excellent service. Ski lift is a comfy chair lift too

We drove from the Italian side into France and then back....such beautiful and stunning scenery throughout. There are places to stop and park and picnic along the route, along with cafe's, restaurants dotted around...but fortunately not over developed!
