Classic panoramic winter walk in front of the Dolomites.
Distance 4.1 km
The Lavazè Plateau, a paradise for cross-country skiers, offers also itineraries for non-skiers. The most famous is the path that leads to Oclini Pass. The panorama ranges from the Dolomite peaks of the Latemar, the Catinaccio/Rosengarten and the Corno Bianco to the porphyritic peaks of the Pala di Santa and the Corno Nero. The Vaia storm (October 2018) has considerably changed the landscape, making this route even more sunny and more panoramic.
Along the way you will find two mountain huts, ideal for a typical lunch or a sweet snack.
Experience walking along irregular mountain trails is recommended. It may happen that the path is not clear form snow. In the event of fresh snow, microspikes are recommended. Be careful of ice when temperatures are particularly low.
Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
The easy and well-signposted walk starts from Passo Lavazè, in the square in front of the Sporthotel Lavazè. It leads first to Malga Varena and then to Malga Ora. From Malga Ora it is possible to reach Passo Oclini on an uphill track. The two huts are open to the public.
The return takes place on the same itinerary.
