The Valparola Pass (}

}}: Passo di Valparola) (el. 2168 m.) is a high mountain pass in the Dolomites in the province of Belluno in Italy.

The pass lies a little west of Falzarego Pass.

Before World War I, there was only a trail over the pass, but the area was heavily contended during the war. A remaining fort has been made into a museum.

The pass is the divide between the watersheds of the Adige, which flows west into the Adriatic Sea and the Piave, which flows east.

Maratona dles Dolomites

The Valparola Pass is the last of seven Dolomites mountain passes riders cross in the annual Maratona dles Dolomites single-day bicycle race.
