To the south of the Lagorai chain and in the group of the Cima d’Asta you will find this hid granite island in the Trentino region. In the Lagorai region you will rarely encounter any hikers and with the exception of the main peak, the same is true for the d’Asta group. The visits of the main mountain are mostly because of the Rifugio Ottone Brentari next to the Lago di Cima d’Asta which allows the division of the ascension into two days. The road that goes around the mountains cannot be driven on constantly; therefore, you can enjoy the silence and the remoteness even better. Talking about the history of this mountain, it is very difficult to find clear data for the entire area. A protocol of the measuring indicates and ascension as early as 1816 because the peak offers great views for those who needed them. Tough, in a report by Gustav Euringer, who climbed the mountain in 1882, he wrote that there was no evidence of an earlier ascension. Most of the climbs onto this mountain start from the Malga Sorgazza which can be reached through the Val Malene starting in Pieve Tesino. From the same starting location you can also reach the picturesque Lago di Costa Brunella that can be reached along the path to the Cima Orsera. The recommended hike starts in the valley that borders to the west, the Val Campelle, and does not lead into the centre of the group.


From the location Teddon (1403 m) you follow path n. 332 through the Val Calden and along the river Rivo di Caserine until you reach the Malga Caldenave (1792 m). Shortly after walking on this path you follow the path to the left just behind the alp to continue in the direction of the Val Orsera. You walk across some meadows and continue to walk uphill quite steeply. The path brings you through the entire valley and at the end you will meet a grassy slope, interspersed with rocks, via which you will reach the Forcella Orsera. To the left you continue on small serpentines where one part is equipped with a rope to reach the Forcella (2306 m). This is where you will meet a small path, n. 328, that comes from the Lago di Costa Brunella. At the saddle you turn right and at the ideal point you turn for the peak of the Cima Orsera (2471 m). You then get back to the path and turn left for the Forcella delle Buse Todesche (2309 m). At the signs of this saddle you turn left and downhill in the north-western direction, n. 360 to the Laghetto dell’Infernetto (2094 m). While keeping the right you will reach the derelicts alp Lastei Scagni (2193 m). Past this hut you will reach another lake, Lago Nassere (2063 m) and while walking towards the valley you get past the Malga Nassere (1763 m) and back to the starting point.


You have the possibility to connect the Malga Caldenave (1792 m) and the Laghetto dell’Infernetto (2094 m) via the Laghi della Val Inferno. Thereby, you can walk through the Val Orsera without the diffictul part onto the peak. Time needed: 3 hours.
