To get from Zoldo Alto, where we were staying for a week, to Cortina d'Ampezzo we had to cross Passo Giau. The trip took us a bit lees then an hour one way. Passo Giau is a mountain pass at 2236 meters above sea level and it offers nice views views on both sides and high mountains surrounding it.
However, to get to the top there are numerous hairpin bends to conquer. Going down the other side on both sides.
You can imagine I just could not resist the temptation of a short photo stop.
I would definitely recommend a stop to anyone. I also suggest you even take a short climb up the hill behind a small parking lot (just past the little chapel).
Views are even better from there.
The second photo was taken just from up there. On the far left side the first few hairpin bends can be seen.
