Trento – Kaltern am See
Stage 6 will be diversified and challenging at the same time. Therefore, you need to mobilize all your strength for the south climb of the Manghen pass. But first, the centrum of the huge city has to be left behind, by driving through beautiful villages next to the Lago di Canzolino. As a result, you can get warm on your way to the Valsugana Valley before hitting the Manghen pass. This pass was driven already in 2010 but from the north, which is less challenging. In comparison, the climb from Valsugana in the south is longer. The approximately 2000 meters of difference in altitude are split up in two. After the first 600 meters of altitude you can rest a little bit, before hitting the last 1400 meters in difference of altitude. Stay concentrated for the narrow downhill into the Fiemme Valley. From there the route leads on, driving the San Lugano pass, to the Etsch Valley, where the last short and flat climb to Kaltern starts. In Kaltern you can look forward to a nice glass of wine of the region.
