In the nature reserve Supramonte di Oliena, the way to the goal, as the grottoes at the destination were unfortunately closed, we only learned when we arrived 🤪
The path paved at the beginning, dananch a good to go slightly stony-sandy track (two fortunately only short pieces were paved) with slight vertical meters.
On the way to the right, you can always see the steep face of the Supramonte mountains, a very impressive wall, the path to the valley gives time and again the view to the Monte Tiscali, which is like a cone at the end of the valley.
The path leads through a very beautiful oak forest, on the way back through an avenue of large pines, which donate nice shade in between.
Since the route, albeit slowly, is also to drive by car, I would rather not run it, since the prospect of locked grottos not exactly motiviert.Dennoch a good tour with some nice impressions.

On ever narrower path go right up to Berginn really heavy, the "only" about 250 meters of altitude have in itself. The climb is towards the end rocky, sometimes very high level.
Arriving on the plateau, you have a fabulous view of the valley and the karst summit of Punta Su Mutucrone.Here there are hardly any trees (isolated oaks are still visible) and Macchiapplanzen such as shrubs, thistles and grasses.From here to the later descent If you walk now only by sight, there are no more trails, as the rocks and rocky scree no visible way zulassen.Nach several hills then appears the Punta Gurturgius with its plant-less summit, really bizarre.Very impressive is now the area, only Rocky stones on which one must choose the way.
Until the end of the round trip on the plateau, the walk is very exhausting, because you have to go every step from stone to stone very concentrated.
A very interesting and impressive hike, highly recommended.(The GPS signal bounced with the many grasshoppers, miles and time are not right)

The scenic and varied tour starts on the plateau Campu Oddeu on a wide gravel road, which soon becomes narrower and after the first ascent, the view down to Urzulei and the view opens up to the Gulf of Arbatax.
The path becomes narrower and leads below the summit of Punta Calavigru through a beautiful deciduous forest, later through low heather down to the valley Codula de sa Mela.
And suddenly everything is dry. What a landscape change!
Along the dried riverbed of the Riu sa Terina, the path leads past only a few trees and dried shrubs until at the end of the valley it turns into a rocky path, where you have to walk very concentrated, left hand goes quite steeply down.
Again and again one encounters free-roaming animals, but all of them were peaceful (donkeys, cattle, pigs and goats)
An impressive tour, I can highly recommend.With Wanderkilometer 11 you could also start a tour because there is parking, the first 5 km of our tour, I would not want to miss.
