Transfer by bus to the last station “Paolina”, 1700m.

First follow the street upwards to the Passo Costalunga. Near the restaurant Antermont our hiking starts. The path n. 17 leads you through forest and over the Latemar meadows up to the entrance into the “small Latemarscharte”. Here you are directly under the steep Latemar towers, approx. 1925m. We take the right path which is descending (n. 13 and 13A). After some minutes you enter the “labyrinth” path (n. 20): the giant rocks, broke away from the Latemar in prehistoric times.

Here the path runs between the stones until you reach the “Mitterleger”, 1820m, a beautiful larch clearing with a forest hut and a source.

The way back on the path n. 21 leads us through the wonderful wood of Carezza back to the starting point.

Tips and hints

We take the bus to the “Karer Pass”.

From there, the path leads us through woods and alpine meadows along path no. 17. At the turning of hiking trail no.18 we follow the sign "kleine Latemarscharte". Here we are directly at the bottom of the Latemar-tower, about 2000m. We turn right and follow the path no. 13 about 100 m downhill and get on the path no. 20. This leads us into the labyrinth, a huge landslide of bizarre, fantastic boulders. The path winds its way through this impressive rock labyrinth until, at its end, we descend gently through a silvan glade and finally reach the hut “Mitterleger”, lying in the middle of a beautiful mountain meadow.

The way back leads us through a magnificent wood, arriving at the starting point
