A varied ski touring route in the Braies Dolomites.

Directions

This hike takes us to the right-hand side (orographic) of the lake first, along a series of gentle ups and downs, on route 1. At the end of the lake we take route 19 as far as the Grünwaldalm alpine hut. We turn left before the hut – the hike now takes us along route 23. We continue on moderately steep slopes to the Sennesertal Valley as far as the Seitenbachscharte pass (2,330 m). From here we continue west until we begin to see the mountain ridge, crossing over various hairpin bends.
Descent: via the same route.

Variante

In the right conditions (check the weather reports for avalanches!) you can go down directly heading south-west from the summit to the small pass, approx. 100 m further down. From here we continue to the Lärchental Valley, along ups and downs and into the Grünbachtal Valley as far at the Grünwaldalm alpine hut and then return to the starting point.

    Che bello salire fuori dal sentiero nei piccoli larici, sopra la malga superato il vallone alla sella, una terrazza enorme con una vista che va dalle Lavaredo, Tofana de Inze, Fanis. La cima con la lunga e facile cresta, un imbuto superbo che ti riporta alla sella e poi giù ancora. Una gita completa mai banale, le ore scorrono volentieri. Grazie.
