Nufenenpass, pass summit. Here we are looking to the valley tothe Western Pass exit. We are on the border between the Canton of Valais (Wallis) and the Ticino (Ticino). Up here most the time a strong wind is blowing, since the air does permanently exchange between the Valais and Ticino. The Nufenen pass is also the highest mountain pass in Central Switzerland.
