Passo Gardena

Friday 22 July 2016. The final walk of this holiday was 9 miles with a total ascent of 800ft and a total descent of just over 3,000ft. Rather than catching a bus we started and finished from the hotel. The Dantercepies ski lift took us up to a height of 7,500ft from where we made a steady descent to the Utia Forcelles hut for mid-morning coffee. it was a warm and humid day with thunderstorms forecast by early afternoon so the stop was very welcome.

Having come down quite a long way, we retraced our path uphill to Passo Gardena. Most of the climbing had been done by now and it was largely downhill back to Selva stopping for lunch along the way. It started to rain only 30 minutes after we got back so it was a well-timed walk.
