About Furkajoch

The Furkajoch is a mountain pass in the Alps. It connects the valley of the Bregenzer Ach near Damüls with the valley of the Frutz near Laterns. The pass path was made correspondingly simple and, until recently, was little more than a natural path. Only a few years ago a modern, narrow road was built over the Furkajoch.
