A nice itinerary with a little bit of safre adventure. A good starting point to get acquainted with the vie ferrate, but also a nice time to look around and enjoy the wonderful panorama.

All the area is well served with mountain huts, and it is only a matter of choosing. Start with light supplies and stop many times in the various mountain huts! The vistas off the top of Mt Nuvolau and Averau are next to none worldwide.


Two possible accesses: from Passo Giau along path 443 or from Rifugio Cinque Torri always along path 443, but in the opposite direction.

Ascent description

The initial walk is simple, whether you start from the Giau pass or from the Cinque Torri refuge.
