Very popular route, in a truly unique environment. Val Venegia looks like something out of a storybook; the trees covered with snow, the frozen Travignolo stream, the valleys that seem to be made of cotton wool and the view of the imposing rocky spur of Cimon della Pala, also known as the "Matterhorn of the Dolomites".

Author’s recommendation

The destination is very famous, but with such a view, it is almost impossible to be the only hiker.

Safety information

Safe track and, although long, not difficult.



  1. Prepare your itinerary beforehand
  2. Choose an itinerary that suits your physical abilities
  3. Choose suitable clothes and equipment
  4. Check the weather forecast
  5. Hiking by yourself is more risky; if this is the case, take a mobile phone with you
  6. Leave information about your itinerary and your expected return time
  7. If you are not sure about your itinerary, contact an Alpine Guide
  8. Pay attention to signposts and directions that you find along your way
  9. Do not hesitate in going back if you feel too tired
  10. In case of emergency call 112

Remember, snowpack stability is subject to sudden and unforeseeable changes and shifts. Always check the local avalanche before departure and make sure you gather all possible information concerning current conditions from the local Mountain Guides. GPS tracks are merely indicative of the more standard routes but must not be followed blindly without first checking current slope and terrain conditions. Correct orientation may be a problem at times along the higher stretches of this route due to fog or low cloud cover.
