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.

Destination

Ciampac (Alba di Canazei)

Turn-by-turn directions

Leave Fontanazzo on Strèda de l’Albolina and cross the river Avisio. Turn left and then immediately right onto path no. 645, which leads directly into the wood. The climb begins and you will pass an iron cross. There is a succession of steep bends and after an hour of climbing you will come to the meadow at Duì (1,771 m; 1 hour) where there are a few wooden huts. The path is now flat and leads to the Ruf de Grepa. Then there is another steep section of path which winds up through the trees. You will reach a gate and then suddenly you will be in the high pastures of the Val de Grepa. Now the path proceeds gently through the huts and barns. The valley is flanked by stone pine woods, and the skyline is dominated by the black summit of the Crepa Neigra mountain. Go on to the end of the valley and then you will begin to climb again. You will come to a working dairy, and then the path zigzags up to the Pian de Sele (2 hrs; 3 hrs). The path is easy down the other side to the Ciampac basin (2,152 m) (45 mins; 3 hrs 45). From here take the cabin-lift down to Alba (Dèlba).
