In this chapter we discuss the Nuvolau Group, the famous mountain group for the Cima Averau 2.647m and the Passo Giaù that go through it.
Despite being the less extensive groups in the Dolomites, the Nuvolau Group offers hidden beauties and breathtaking views.It is located between the towns of San Vito di Cadore and Cortina d'Ampezzo and can be reached by crossing the Falzarego pass or the Giaù pass.
The latter, in particular, is very famous for being one of the most surprising and hardest passes in the Dolomites and this notoriety derives above all from the several stages of the Giro d'Italia, from the Rally and the Marathons of the Dolomites.Every day, in fact, there are really many cyclists and motorcyclists who face the ascent of Santa Lucia and the endless bends and then they descend down to Cortina D'Ampezzo
From Passo Giaù, moreover, there are numerous trails suitable for any type of excursion, which wind through the Croda da Lago, the Nuvolau, the Averau, the Cinque Torri and many others.The latter represent the most characteristic formations as they are almost entirely formed by the Dolomia, the typical red rock of the Dolomites. The highest spur, the "Great Tower" reaches a height of 2361 meters.
