Geocache Description:

"Drive in Cache" speziell für Motorrad Fahrer (und andere...)
"Drive in Cache" especially for motorcyclists (and others...)

Der Col des Planches (1411 müM) verbindet auf 21km Länge die Stadt Martigny mit Sembrancher. Auf beiden Seiten steigt die Strasse teils sehr steil an. So hast du beispielsweise ab Martigny nach 8 km Fahrt nur etwa 2 km Luftlinie zur Stadt! Auf oberhalb des Dorfes "Chemin" windet sich die Route durch herrliche Alpweiden, durchsetzt mit Lärchen.
Auf der Passhöhe gibt es ein nettes kleines Restaurant.

Col des Planches (1411 m) connects the city of Martigny with Sembrancher. The length is 21km. On both sides the road is partly pretty steep. Having driven about 8 km from Martigny it's only about 2 km straightline of it! After the nice village of "Chemin" the road winds up through beautiful alpine meadows covered with nice larches.
On top of the pass theres a little restaurant
