The Giau Pass (Italian: Passo di Giau) (ladin lenguage: Jof de Giau) (el. 2236 m.) is a high mountain pass in the Dolomites in the province of Belluno in Italy. It connects Cortina d'Ampezzo and Colle Santa Lucia. It is located at the center of a vast mountain pasture at the foot of Nuvolau (2,574 m) and dell'Averau (2,647 m) from which you can easily reach the Monte Pore (2,405 m).

There are no easy words to describe the amazing view, the breathtaking mountains, the heart stopping road. We went during winter, which made it even more spectacular. The light is incredible!

The views are spectacular, unfortunately it would have been better if it was sunnier with less clouds, but it was still worth driving up there. There are different tracking paths which look fine even for young kids, though we did not explore much the area...More
