Turn-by-turn directions

From the valley station of the Boé cabin lift cross the snowy meadows northwards until the main road. Cross the main road passing through the underpass and take the path on the left towards Colfosco. After about 800 meters, it is time to take another underpass. Cross the road and take the path along the Pisciadú stream and passing the camping, continue along trail n. 28 direction Colfosco and to the entrance of the Val de Misdé. The path, well prepared and signed, ends in a vast snow-covered clearing at the foot of the Grup dl Sela.

For the return you can follow the same path or from Colfosco you take the sunny Str. Mersa to Corvara.
