The via ferrata Meisules is one of the thoughest trails here in the surroundings. Just expert people should do it. The final destination of this via ferrata is the Piz Miara peak. From there you will have a view of the whole valley with surroundings. On the top there is also a peak diary where you can write in your experience on the route.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Sella Pass, 2240m, we pass the three Sella towers to track up to the gray-black, wall. On the secured with wire ropes, iron stirrups and brackets way it goes steep and exposed up to a large debris stage. About as large terrace band at about 2700m, which moves the Sella, you get to the last part of the climbing. After a well-secured gorge you reach the debris-covered plateau of the Sella and stick the top of the Sella peak, 2941m.
Descent: On the summit of Piz Gralba, 2974m, Piz Miara, 2965m, and Piz Beguz, 2972m, you reach the path no. 677. Still keep staying on the path no. 649. In the saddle before Zwischenkofel, 2908m, turn right following the road no. 647 through Val Lasties and down to the road that leads to the Sella Pass. From here either hitchhiking or walking back to the Sella Pass, 2240m.
