Easy itinerary at altitude: the difference in height to reach the start is covered by the lifts. The hiker has all the pleasure of a rewarding walk constantly at 2000 meters and beyond! A short passage with fixed rope and steps, but never with voids or overhangs, makes the excursion dynamic and exciting.

Author’s recommendation

Panoramio 360° is an installation at Paion del Cermis, a few steps from the mountain hut with the same name, which allows you to identify and know the name of each single visible peak: a 360 degree view that enchants.

Turn-by-turn directions

Take the Alpe Cermis cable car (open from mid-June to mid-September) to Paion del Cermis.

Follow trail No 3 and directions for Laghi di Bombasel. The route first descends along a wide road which in winter is a ski slope. Once in Forcella Bombasel, the only demanding stretch of the hike begins, with some stairs that helps you to descend a steep part. Continue on the evident track in constant ascent until you reach the lakes.

Way back on the same path.
