The mountain hut is located on the pleasant and sunny grassy ridge right below the pyramid-shaped mountain of the same name while, to the north, it is bordered by the wild valley of Entralais and Monte Cimon.

Along with the walk to the Digola pass, this is one of the “classic” routes, very popular and pleasurable due to the variety of areas and panoramas it offers.After a long passage through fir trees, under the steep, looming rock faces of Monte Geu, the landscape suddenly opens up with very beautiful views of the Siera group, the distant Popèra, all the mountains to the north of Sappada and, of course, the Valle del Sole. Recommendation for lovers of authentic food:excellent dairy products are on sale in the mountain hut!And for the thirsty:the precious mineral waters found along the route.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the chairlift station on Monte Siera, follow path 355 leading down to Forni Avoltri (sign “magla Tuglia”) for around fifty metres, then take the broad forest trail on the right that passes through the woods at a slight gradient until reaching the gurgling waters of the Rio Geu. Here, the cart track becomes a narrow path that, beyond the stream, winds along in the shade of fir trees. A little further on, the pleasing sound of water is heard again from another river than runs rapidly alongside the path in the midst of lush, green moss:it is worth leaving path 320 for a few metres to admire the unusual scenery and to fill water-bottles with its precious mineral waters.The track then climbs a gravel slope and continues more or less level until it joins the cart track that climbs up from the road on the valley floor. Here, the forest is left behind and the scenery opens up.Bathed in sunlight, head east over various undulations to just below the ridge where the mountain hut is located.

The return follows the same route.
