meaning of this route, that goes beyond the Orobie
Alps is the more economic energetical solution
to cross this new pass , which is little
better than a mule-track, and that was opened
to traffic with a dirt road only in September 2003, is that
to discover and to take some photos (I still hope for a
long time) to the beauty of these wild places. Certainly,
in large you might think to get down in Fusine then go up
by P. sso S. Marco and so closing a four stars tour, perhaps
doing it on the contrary because the climb from the Val
Madre is a nice challenge
because of the gradient.
About our itinerary, we leave the
parking and, followig the signs,
we go toward the Hotel des Alpes. Over the hotel,
we continue over a bar on a dirt road
that, in about 3, 5 Km of good climb, let us to reach, opening
up the view on Foppolo, the Passo della Croce and the Montebello,
the Dordona Pass.
Now we are in peak at 2061 meters
on the border with the province of Sondrio.The panorama
is great either on the Bernina mountains Group that stands
out in front of us, or towards the Bergamo earth that we
have just passed.
We could stop here, but we have made
only 4 km, so, after taking some photos, we decide to go
up to the Dordona
refuge that we
see small on the orographic left coast of the Val Madre
that opens wild before us.
R eached the refuge, the time to refresh
ourselves and walk up the pass together with a group of
bikers from Fusine that greet on top of the Dordona. Satisfied
of our trip we go back to the parking in Foppolo.
