Excursion without significant change in altitude which takes place entirely on a snow-covered path, crossing a wood of distincitive natural value owing to certain sections made up entirely of beech trees.
The itinerary runs through Vallesinella, and leads to the splendid Cascate di Mezzo, which in winter form a fascinating frozen wall, the venue for exciting ice climbing.
Looking up you can admire all the Dolomite spires, which soar defiantly towards the sky
Safety informationExperience walking along irregular mountain trails is recommended. In the event of fresh snow, snowshoes are also recommended. Be careful of ice when temperatures are particularly low. As you might imagine, the accessibility of these mountain trails depends entirely on the conditions found at any given time, such as the weather and other natural and environmental conditions. Therefore, before you set out, you should check the status of the trail by contacting alpine guides, lodge operators, or the local tourist office or park information office.
