Route Summary

The “Sandokan” is a short, quick track with little gradient.

Because of its privileged location in relation to its neighbouring tracks: "Avalanche Raposeira", "Blackline" and "Redline”, “Sandokan” is the ideal track to warm up and prepare for the following descents.

With beautiful scenery and natural toboggans it really is a must, although it does require some technical ability on the rocky areas.

“Sandokan” starts on a dirt road to the right (coming up), follow the dirt road about 500 meters to find the single track that leads a little below the starting point. At the end of the route, on the Regional Road (ER210) you can go back up ready to take on the more extensive tracks.
