Col du Tourmalet France , another iconic climb featured in many of the Tour de France Climbs. The Col du Tourmalet can be found close to the Spanish boarder in the Pyrenees Mounatain range. The Col du Tourmalet is the highest paved mountain pass in the French Pyrenees.

 

Some Frenchmen believe that Tourmalet translates into "bad trip" or "bad detour" because in French Tour translates into "trip" and mal translates into "bad"; however, the correct language to translate from is Gascon, not French, because of the mountain's location in the Gascony-region and the "du" in the name, which is the Gascon pendant to the French "de". Then Tour becomes "distance", which is spelled "tur" but pronounced "tour", mal is translated into "mountain", and et becomes "the". The translation from Gascon to English then becomes "The Distance Mountain".
