The Giau Pass

This wonderful and challenging tour takes you to conquer the most beautiful and challenging passes of the Dolomites. From Selva di Cadore to Passo Giau there are just over 10 km, with a vertical drop of 898 meters. The average gradient is over 9% with peaks of up to 14%! It is an ascent among the harshest of the Eastern Dolomites. The road leads you through a forest at the beginning leaving an open view very soon with stunning views to the medows. The road is narrow and with many turns. After the Giau the climb to the Falzarego pass will wait for you. Just as beautiful but considerably more accessible. The amazing view to Cortina and to the surrounding mountains will let you forget the tiredness and let you enjoy being in the Dolomites.
