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.

Reach Paion del Cermis by using the two cablecars + one chairlift from Cavalese. Fiemme Guest Card’s owners can have a discount on the ride. From Paion del Cermis hut take the time to admire the wonderful panorama to the Dolomites of Val di Fassa (up to Sella and Marmolada), the Pale di San Martino, Corno Bianco, Corno Nero and Latemar. You can see also the Austrian Alps and the Dolomiti di Brenta at far distance.
After taking plenty of pictures it’s time to start the hike: with no relevant difficulties on a pretty flat slope, we reach Forcella Bombasel in 15 minutes.
From Forcella Bombasel, the hike gets harder: the pathway is rifted in rocks and it’s equipped by wooden stairs and a fixed steel rope to ease the walk. From here, the view stretches ahead to the rest of the route up to the Lakes of Bombasel (not yet visible at this point). The route keeps ascending but the gradient is never too hard (pay attention to the stony ground to avoid slipping, especially kids).
After a further thirty-minute walk, the way turns right and you can see the Castel di Bombasel not far from our destination: just a few steps now and we reach the Lakes of Bombasel.
For a wonderful view over the two lakes we recommend to walk up to Forcella del Macaco, along the pathway 353-L06. From the pass the view goes down surrounding the large Lake of Lagorai reachable in an hour.
To get back to Paion del Cermis hut just go back on the same route.
