Coll de Pam, a lesser-known gem in the cycling world, offers a unique and scenic route for cyclists looking for an authentic mountain experience. Starting from the historic town of Mont-Louis, located in the French Pyrenees, this route provides a journey through some of the most picturesque landscapes the region has to offer, culminating in a rewarding ascent to the Coll de Pam.

Mont-Louis, renowned for its fortified citadel designed by Vauban and a UNESCO World Heritage site, serves as the starting point. This town not only offers historical intrigue but is also a gateway to several cycling routes in the Pyrenees. The route to Coll de Pam is characterized by its relatively gentle gradients compared to other Pyrenean climbs, making it accessible for cyclists looking for a less strenuous mountain experience.
