The Maloja Pass (1815 m) connects Bergell with Maloja on the Engadine plateau via an ascent ramp of 356 m difference in altitude. It's one of the most photogenic pass roads in Switzerland. If you are in Engadine, it's worth to come here and have quick stop here. The Malojapass is also a great starting point for many different hikes in the area.

There is a Postbus coming up the pass or by car it's also no problem to find a parking lot. To get to the above mentioned place you will need to walk or drive a little bit more down past the pass and then turn left in a small forest road. From there it's just a few 100 metres to the spot and also to more parking lots.

Photography tips: If you have a drone you get truly spectacular shots but also with a camera it's so impressive. Make sure to come not too late in the afternoon since the sun hides behind the mountains and the street is not anymore illuminated.
