Andalo - Valbiole

Turn-by-turn directions

From the town centre, you drive to via Crosare and then to via Pradél and you continue to Valbiole; from the parking place, you go 300m. to a cross and you go here right along a comfortable track leading to Albi, where the forest ends. Continuing along the large valley, you come to a cross: you go right to Prati del Monte (1838 m.) and along the Eastern side of Piz Galin, so that you reach a green small valley, the Bocchetta del Galin. From here you continue to the top with difficulty along the rocky crest.
