Trekking in Val di Fassa

Last week I had a very good time with friends in Val di Fassa (Trentino). We were based in Campitello di Fassa and had 5 full days of trekkings on the mountains. I’ve been desiring mountain trekking for a long time: this is why I liked it so much! Before leaving, I believed to be not in so good shape (lack of practice) but I was happy to ascertain that my body was mountain-proof 😉

Here are the details of our walks:

  • Path01 – Climbed up from Passo Pordoi to Sass Pordoi (2960 masl) with the lift, admired the view on Marmolada, Sasso Lungo and Sella groups and had our way on rocks and snow spots almost up to Rifugio Pisciadù (1h30′)
  • Path02 – Reached Fedaia lake by car and then had a quiet walk on its edge (30′)
  • Path03 – Parked car next to Paneveggio and climbed up to Baita Segantini “the non-easy way”: we followed a  smooth and long pebbly path with a magnificent view on the Pale di S.Martino mountains group (2h30′). Had an impressively tasty lunch at Baita Segantini
  • Path04 – Reached Passo Lavazé by car, enjoyed its artificial lake and the surrounding cows 🙂 then entered a pine forest and sought for edible mushrooms – unfortunately, none found (1h)
  • Path05 – Climbed up from Campitello to Col Rodella with the lift, had our way over grassy and rocky paths flanking Punta Grohmann and Sasso Piatto and heading to Rifugio Sasso Piatto. Had lunch there and climbed down to Campitello through Val Duron and a pine forest (6h)

Next year we’ll be back, no matter what! You can find more photos about these trekkings at my panoramio gallery
