How to get there

From the west one climbs the D70 from Camp de Milo (500m) via La Bollène-Vésubie and Col de Turini (1606m) to the pass. From the southeast you climb from Sospel (363m) the D2566 via Col de Turini to the pass. From the south you climb D21 from Lucéram (650m) via Pas de l’Escous (1008m), Baisse de la Cabanette (1371m) and Col de Turini to the pass or via D2566 and Col St. Roch (991m), Baisse de la Cabanette (1371m) and Col de Turini to the pass. One would then likely have started further down at L’Escarène (361m).

You could also start the southern climb in Contes (192m) and climb the D15 via Coaraze (619m) to Col de Savel (972m), Col St. Roch and take the D2566 to Baisse de la Cabanette and continue to the pass. (It is roughly 140m of climbing in the ups and downs after Coaraze.) The Peïra Cava road reaches 1618m before Col de Turini. If you continue on the D68 from Col de Turini after the pass, you will soon come to the Baisse de Tueis (1888m) located at the start of the 9 km circle road at L’Authion (2024m).

Other comments There are 2-3 restaurants around this pass. (Photo is taken of the fort ruins near the highest point (2024m) on the L’Authion circle road.) See also the Baisse de Peïra Cava (1508m) close to the Peïra Cava road.
