A steep gravel road to Forcella Luson in the Dolomites
Lüsner Scharte/Forcella Luson is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.383m (7,818ft) above the sea level, located in the heart of the Dolomites in South Tyrol, Italy.
Located in the heart of the Dolomites, the road to the pass is called Via Panoramica Dolomiti/Dolomiten Panoramaweg. It’s a gravel road, very narrow, and closed in winters. This road gets worse as you get nearer to the top.
The climb is pretty steep. Near the summit there’s a mountain hut known as Plosehütte (Rifugio Plose). Starting from Strada Provinciale 29 (SP-29), the road is 8.3 km long. The drive offers very good views.
