|How to get there||This is a great newly asphalted climb from Bormio (1200m). The towers of Fraele are impressive from below and the lakes/dams with the mountainsides surrounding them are also very impressive – you should continue to the dams here! Written earlier: “a very recommended road for road bicyclists wishing to try out some mountain gravel roads. The road is dusty and there are some lorries using he road.” Now this road is fully paved to the top since 2009-2010? It is still gravel road along the to the big dams up here that I very much recommend to visit. I also recommend, that on the descent, to take the level road that leaves just after the second hairpin bend from above on the return journey, in order to get up the valley via (1881m (fr. 1862m)) to Passo di Foscagno (2291m).|
|Other comments||There is one water tap early on – make use of it! For further information, see Passo di Valle Alpisella (2288m). You can possibly go over Passo di Valle Alpisella to get to Livigno (though you are likely to have to walk some with a road bike).
