Sölk Pass | Styria / AUSTRIA - el. 1788 m
Sölkpass | Steiermark / Österreich - skreiner.com
The pass road was buit in 1954, but the way is used since about 3200 years (since bronze age), also a Roman road existed.
When it snows, the pass is closed, often as early as August. It is a rare chance that you can drive a car in October still here. But this year everything is slightly different. ;-)
