Best view ever! Worth the trip! Can be hot despite high altitude cos it's very sunny. Take a stroll down to the highest corner of the corridor. But I have to walk back to take transport

Very interesting. Glad to see one side of the wall preserved and kept away from tourists who rip into the snow. Fascinating to see how the snow layers layer upon layer. Beautiful.

A breathing place with great snow wall! Truly amazing! But too many people that you can't escape them to take photos. Still a place must to see once!

It located near Murudo station. You can walk along the corridor from mid-April to late-June. On the day of opening the route, this corridor can be more than 15 meters in height. You can take a famous picture of buses moving along the corridor here. Pictures of white snow corridor with blue sky are also fantastic. With all of these reasons, it is the must-see place on the alpine route.
