This southern option is narrower and the road can be bumpy in places, as it's not so well-used. This road is slightly off the beaten track, the main road in this direction running a little further north and it just has to be recommended. The west side is narrower, bumpier and twistier than the other side and technically harder than the east side which consists of wide sweepers and hairpins on an excellent surface, gradually straightening out to low alpine meadow scenery and a few villages towards Saanen. Overall the surface is average to excellent. Fantastic scenery, especially at the top in the small town of Les Diablarets there's all sorts of terrain but mainly low alpine, looking up to the dark peaks like giant versions of the Brecon Beacons. Imagine the size of the glaciers that must have formed these valleys. If you're in the area and it's not raining or snowing, DO IT..
