Take the cable car from Vigo di Fassa (Vich), and in a few minutes you will reach Ciampedìe (1,998 m) with its superb view of the Fassa Dolomites. From the cable car go to the nearby Ciampedìe refuge and then down to the Negritella refuge. The path starts here. It is wide and flat and, once past the ski-run, goes into the woods. As you walk, the view of the Larséch mountain to the right changes continually, and the Catinaccio (Ciadenac) mountain becomes gradually more and more imposing. You come out of the woods near a few wooden huts and in a few minutes arrive at the refuges of the Gardeccia basin (1,948 m; 45 mins).

The path is suited for trekking-strollers.

Safety information

For your hikes in mountain always choose itineraries in accordance with your technical and physical abilities. Consult maps of the area to visit and check the best way to follow. If you walk in group including slower hikers, always calculate longer average times to cover the distances.

Preferably do not hike alone in mountain. Otherwise tell someone the itinerary that you are going to follow and let him know when you are back.

Check the weather forecast and, while hiking, constantly pay attention to the evolution of the weather.

If you do not feel safe, give up. In mountain, sometimes, it is better to surrender than to face the dangers deriving from bad weather conditions or from difficulties superior to one’s limits. In advance look for alternative itineraries to get back.

Bring rubbish back with you. Respect the flora and fauna. Remain on the marked tracks, avoiding to follow shortest ways, in order to avoid causing damages to vegetation and the territory. Respect local cultures andtraditions, always bearing in mind that you are a guest.
