One of the most famous massifs in the Dolomites is surely the Langkofel group. Its peaks look especially imposing when seen from the Seiser Alm. The sight of the 3181m, the Sella massif to the east and the Rosengarten group to the south west truly burns itself into your memory.

Directions


No wonder that this bike tour is one of the highlights of the Gardena Dolomites. For endurance riders who can 'sleep-ride' down single trails, there's nothing standing in the way of enjoying the 1600m vertical climb. Warning! Lots of traffic on the short road sections to the Gardena pass and from the entrance to the Durontal valley (shuttle bus service in the summer months) to the Micheluzzi-Hütte.

    Itinerario assolutamente improponibile per persone che non siano super allenate,direi da semipro,lunghi tratti di salita su fondo pieno di rocce e sassi dove la trazione è quasi nulla,ci sono tre discese,la seconda molto bella tra boschi e terreno compatto,più tecnica che veloce,percorso fatto in nove ore,di queste in movimento 4,50,tra bici a spinta e pedalata,ppanorama mozzafiato ma per me che mi ritengo abbastanza allenato il gioco non vale la candela,troppo impegnativo a livello fisico,sconsigliato a chi non ha un ebike(bici ideale per questo giro) e per chi si vuole divertire senza patirà la fatica.
