Ferrata Lipella to Tofana di Rozes

The Via Ferrata Lipella is one of the most interesting and beautiful via ferratas of the Dolomites. It is an amazing excursion, with surprising and fascinating historical and environmental features.

This peculiar and unique itinerary enters the heart of the mountain through a long tunnel, dug by the Italian soldiers during the First World War of 1914-1918 to conquer an Austrian outpost.

The entire path is on the typical dolomitic rock, that has peculiar colour shades varying from red to yellow and from white to black.
