Safety information

Choose the route according to your experience and your physical preparation: start with short distances first!

The more, the merrier: leaving alone for a hike can be risky, travel with at least one other person, the experience of a Trekking is better when shared with friends and family!

Program your Trekking in advance, check trails and paths on the maps, have a look online to find out more about your itinerary, ask somebody who already walked the same route.

Prepare your backpack: have a look at our check-list to be sure you already packed all the equipment you may need during the Trekking!

Don’t forget to check the weather forecast.

If you really want to try the experience of a Trekking but you don’t feel ready to do it by your own,  just ask one of our Alpine Guides!

Try to estimate an average journey-time of every route, considering the physical condition of each member of the group.

Inform the Hut owner or who is waiting for you at home about your time of arrival and the itinerary.

Keep your eyes open: while you’re walking, check the number of each footpath, but don’t forget to enjoy nature and its magic!

A plan B is always a good idea! Organize an alternative route in case of bad weather or unforeseen event: go back if it’s necessary, play it safe!

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.

Rifugio Rosetta

Turn-by-turn directions

From Rifugio Mulàz go up briefly towards West on the steep gravel that covers the Mulàz Pass, at the crossroad take a left (South) on path n. 703 that brings immediately to the Margherita Pass, 2655 m., on the northern crest of the Focobón Peak. Continuing to walk towards South, pass a basin coasting the boulders, then by the scree (pay attention to rocks falling) and some streaks of snow, through the aid of wired chords, reach the amazing “rocky balcony” of the Faràngole Pass, 2932 m., that represents the highest point reached by the classic route. Climb over the pass, then descend rapidly, with the aid of wired chords, down below into the circle of debris and a tight basin, where the path turns to the left (East) and then South towards Col de la Burèla. This is the prestigious Path of the Faràngole. Further on there are the steep slopes of the Torcia di Valgrande, a bold tower-shaped boulder, and encounters path n. 716, that ascends the impervious Val Strutt. Continue down South on a long and exposed path, aided by some fixed cables, high over the western side of the Comelle Valley. From the Galline (Italian for Chicken) Valley, the path descends on steep meadows with the aid of some wired cables and brings to the Cantoni Plane where, by a boulder, it merges from the left into the Comelle Path, coming from Garès. At first follow the path on a plane, then slightly ascending, reach Rifugio “Giovanni Pedrotti”at the Rosetta, 2581 m.
