Hike in a westerly direction into the snowed-in high alpine Fassan path to Rotwand Hut.


From Vigo di Fassa (with the ski bus from Tires al Catinaccio/Tiers am Rosengarten) you take the modern cable cars up to the high alpine plateau of Ciampedie (1997 m). Opposite the exit you'll see the entry to the Vajolet Valley and the imposing Larsec rocks to the right. You hike in a westerly direction into the snowed-in high alpine Fassan path to Rotwand Hut (2280 m). This path is very impressive and leads through the forest and across alpine meadows over a wide band along the mountain slope. From here you enjoy a view all the way to the Fassa Valley. Due to the avalanche hazard, for the last part of the ascent to Rotwand Hut it makes sense not to take the sign-posted summer route, but to hike to the left of the valley basin. From Rotwand Hut you enjoy a vast panoramic view of the Masarè Peaks and Rotwand/Croda Rossa, to Mugoni Peak, to Fensterleturm/Torre Finestra and to the Marmolada, and even to the distant Dolomites of Cortina d'Ampezzo. The hike continues to the Theodor Christomannos Memorial (2349 m), a three metre high bronze eagle, which was realised in memorial of this tourism pioneer. From the memorial you hike down to Paolina Hut (2127 m) and take the chairlift to Karerpass road or hike down to Masarè Hut and on path no. 1C to Jolanda Hut (1744 m).

The ski bus brings you back to the point of departure.
