The Falzarego Pass is in Italy in the Dolomites mountain range, on the road from Cortina d’Ampezzo towards Sella Group mountains, with good road connections from three sides.
Location and coordinates
Here are the basic data:
- Elevation: 2105 m (6906 ft).
- Range: Dolomites.
- Coordinates: 46°31′8″N, 12°0′34″E.
The interactive map below shows the location of the Pass. You can zoom out to see the larger area and access roads, or zoom in to see details and hiking routes around.
But directly at the pass the road splits into two directions, one going to the Arabba area, and the other to Corvara valleys. These two roads will allow you to go around the Sella Moutain group.
The road towards Corvara valley goes over Passo Valparola which is in the close vicinity of the Falzarego Pass, probably only one kilometer or so. If you continue this way, you will get to Gardena Pass and also to Sella Pass.
But if you take the road from the pass towards the south-west, see the map above, you can get to Arabba and also to the Pordoi Pass.
Both of these two roads are much steeper as compared to the Cortina approach. From this all you realize that the area is full of mountain passes, and it is also with high peaks around, so it is very attractive.
The video below shows the Cortina road to the pass and then you can see how it descends in the direction of Arabba.
The picture below shows the Tofana Di Roses mountain, this is how it looks from the pass.
