This hike leads across the high alpine pastureland between Corvara and San Cassiano (St. Kassian). It features a large hilly upland meadow with vast mountain pastures and many old hay huts, a pretty group of trees at the edges of the meadows, and the beautiful shapes of the surrounding mountains, which include the Gruppo di Sella (Sellastock) Massif, Sassongher, Monte Cavallo (Heiligkreuzkofel), Cunturines and Lagazuoi.

Go southeast to the Pralongià (or Prelungié) buildings, at 2109 m in altitude (lodging); 2 hours from Col Alt. From there, we recommend a ten-minute detour to the cross on Mount Störes (2,181 m).
