Stage 5 Dolomiti Trek King - The Soul of the Monti Pallidi


This is the king of treks in Val di Fassa, amidst some of the most breathtaking mountains in the world. The fifth stage will take you from Antermoia Lake to Gardeccia.

From the Antermoia Refuge, trail no. 584 goes beyond the Antermoia Pass to flank the western slope of the Catinaccio ...
d’Antermoia and reach the Principe Pass. From here the itinerary goes on southward along trail no. 584 which, after an initial steep stretch, flattens into the Vaiolet Valley, to reach the Vaiolet and Preuss refuges, with a view on the legendary Vaiolet Towers and the eastern wall of the Catinaccio.Legendary mountains, where mountaineering pioneers such as Paul Preuss and Tita Piaz undertook their exploits destined to remain etched in history and in rock. Now take trail no. 546 in the direction of Gardeccia.

Diversions: from the Vaiolet Refuge, the Re Alberto I Refuge can be reached in about an hour along trail no. 542, to admire the southern slopes of the Vaiolet Towers. Adding further 20 minutes, from the Re Alberto I Refuge you can reach Passo Santner Refuge, which offers a breath-taking view over the Latemar Group, the Weiss- and Schwarzhorn peaks, to the Ortler, the Brenta Group, and, finally, the Swiss- and Austrian Alps. Return along the same route as the outward journey.

Author's advice: The tour counts 6 stages on well-indicated CAI-SAT paths. From any point, it is possible to descend to the valley and, thanks to the shuttle service, the mountain lifts or the public means, easily get back to the departure.

Organised 6-day high altitude trekking, from refuge to refuge, to discover the most beautiful peaks of the Fassa Dolomites on foot.
