Program of the Wild Dolomites Trekking in the Dolomites
We leave from the Saint Umberto parking lot located north of Cortina toward Antrulies following trail #418 reaching the cross on the summit of Col Becchei at 2794 meters. The colors of the rocks that vary from blood red to bright orange with dark brown shades in between are truly amazing. We spend the night at Malga Grande di Fanes, run by a nice shepherd and his family and offering an authentic local dinner and breakfast.
A day through history, tracing part of the Austrian front in the Great War along the watershed ridge at Furcia Rossa mountain. Near the end we tackle a nice via ferrata unfolding in part along ledges carved either by nature or by the Austrian Army. We start at 2912 meters on the summit of Monte Cavallo, on the way down along Val Travenanzes, climbing back up again to Rifugio Giussani, handling a very particular stretch of via ferrata named the Meneghel Ladder.
It’s an intense and adventurous day along the Cengia Paolina on ledges and screes that cross the majestic north faces of the Tofanas. This trail is well known only to the Alpine guides as it is not marked or drawn on tour books or maps. At the end we follow a long and amusing scree that leads us back to the starting point of our adventure in the Dolomites.
