Directions

From the clearing at the exit of the Cala Gonone tunnels, walk in the direction of the kiosk of Monte Longu, on a clearly marked, dirt road along some uphill hairpin bends. Keep your right at the junction that you meet during your journey. Pass by the entrance to the old tunnel, which was once lined with ox carts, and then turn left at the next junction. The dirt road continues slightly uphill, with a splendid view of the basin of Cala Gonone. Turn slowly south and towards the clear walls of Monte Bonacoa, left behind at a junction on the left-hand side. Continue uphill, leaving out the detours leading downwards, and enter a young holm oak forest along wide, at times paved bends on the slope of the mountain. In the hairpin bends, every now and then, you will enjoy great views, but they are only the prelude to what you can see from the top of Mount Tului. The road ends near the summit, where there is a relay antenna as well as a service facility. Despite this human intervention, the context is beautiful. To the south you can see much of the coastal and inland Supramonte, while to the north and west you will enjoy the Barony, Montalbo, Barbagia and many other lands of central Sardinia. Right below this scenic terrace are the village of Dorgali and the valley of Cedrino. The view will be even more scenic if you hike in the afternoon, with the shadows gradually stretching over the sea. The return journey is the same as the outward journey.

Directions

From Cala Gonone you go up the hairpin bends by car - or, alternatively, on foot as there are some paths that allow you to cut them in the woods. Eventually you will reach the clearing opposite the entrance of the tunnel that connects Dorgali with its sea hamlet, Cala Gonone. You can park in a clear clearing on the right.
