Owner description: 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). Impressive is the view west towards Colle Santa Lucia with the Pale di San Martino, Cime D'Auta, Marmolada, Piz Boe and Setsass, just to the east towards the valley of Cortina d'Ampezzo, with Tofane, Croda Rossa, Pomagagnon, Cristallo, Croda da Lago, etc ...

“Great Hiking, Breathtaking Views”
Reviewed August 14, 2010

Stop into the tourism office to get a hiking map with all of the marked trails. Take the short bus ride from downtown Cortina to Passo Giau. You can take different paths depending on your desired level of diffculty. We took the 436 to 434 which takes you on a beautiful hike that is easy/ moderate in diffuculty and roughly 4-6 hours. The 434 trail will end about 1km from the town of Pocol where it's easy to catch a bus back to Cortina. You'll be amazed at the beauty of the surrounding Dolomites, the vegetation and wildlife. The weather can change quickly in the mountains, so be sure to choose a clear day. You will not be dissappointed!
