Pass Sempione

Pass Sempione

Simplon Pass (Italian: Passo del Sempione) (2,008 m/6,588 ft) is a high mountain pass between the Pennine Alps and the Lepontine Alps in Switzerland. It connects Brig in the canton of Valais with Domodossola in Piedmont (Italy). The pass itself is, together with the first villages across the border such as Gondo, still in Switzerland. The Simplon Tunnel was built beneath the vicinity of the pass in the early 20th century to carry rail traffic between the two countries.

Rotelsee is a lake located near the pass at an elevation of 2028 m.
