From there we ride up to the Gampenjoch (1518m) following a very good road with stunning views and windings hairpins. After reaching the pass we are already in the Trentino region where we find only Italian road signs.
In Fondo we turn right and cross several villages until the Tonale Pass (1883m) whereby this road is very suitable for motorbikes. After the top of the pass we ride towards Ponte di Legno. From there starts a very narrow part with blind corners. Arrived on the top of the Gavia Pass (2621m), we enjoy a beautiful view to a small mountain lake.
