Really incredible sight though a little touristy. Worth a visit if one is in the area. The place is well managed and maintained considering the number of tourists they get. Gets a little cold even in the summer. Very nice snowy scenes just walking through the corridor.

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.

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

Visited in mid May, the snow wall was lower than April but still have the amazing view of snow corridor. Even though it was quite crowded but the overall feeling of walking around was still very good. Other than snow wall, there is a snow maze. Really great experience and definitely recommended to all.
