From the “Mar Dolomit” swimming pool in Ortisei we run along the stream into the valley and follow the no. 18 path, which leads us over the path no. 30B until just under Monte Pana, past the notable Tervela Waterfall. At the base station of the chair lift we turn right to Ruacia, take the Ruacia road uphill to the roundabout in the centre of S. Cristina and from there up the Cisles road until we turn left over the old railway back to Ortisei. Longer Variant: We run along path no. 18, which takes us through the wild romantic Jender Valley towards Saltria and over the path no. 30A to the Monte Pana high plateau.
