The emotion of reaching the highest peak of the Lagorai.

The summit cross that awaits you on the top is like a vision, after a very long but extremely satisfying excursion. In the initial part of the route there are two beautiful lakes: the basin of Lake Cece, and the picturesque lake Caserina, with an emerald green color. Once you reach the Forcella di Cece, you will go along the path of the legendary Translagorai until you reach the Paolo and Nicola bivouac. The detour quickly leads to the most coveted peak of the Lagorai. The path is of rare beauty. The wild Lagorai reserves glimpses of stone and rocks, panoramas as far as the eye can see, the emotion of being on the remains of the walkways of the First World War. You can find many tunnels dug into the rock by soldiers. From Caserina lake onwards it is likely that you will meet few hikers: you will be immersed in the silence of nature. Important: during the summer 2020 the bivouacs will remain closed.

Escursione indubbiamente impegnativa considerato l'ampio tratto in quota dove si procede su roccia, in genere stabile; il percorso richiede una certa dimestichezza a muoversi su passaggi 'scomodi'. Buona la segnatura, i sentieri si seguono senza difficoltà di orientamento. La traccia gpx qui scaricata non combacia sempre con il percorso nella parte mediana, nel dubbio seguire sempre la segnatura CAI. Escursione compiuta il 15/09/2020 in 6h 40 minuti. Sicuramente consigliata!
