  • 12 kms climb to 12% to climb Mount Washington and discover a panorama at 360 ° it's just fabulous. The road is impressive but totally secure. As a bonus, we witnessed the arrival of the steam rack train, Prodigy of human ability to surpass itself technically. Unforgettable and unprecedented show.
