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.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Valles Pass (2032 m.), path n. 751, already visible from a certain distance, goes up a narrow but clearly marked track all the way to the Veneggia gap (2217 m.; 20 min.). Here it’s highly recommended to take 5 minutes to enjoy the amazing view over the S. Martino group. From here a deviation to the right (10 – 15) takes to the Valles Peak at 2305 m. and to its cross, overlooking the S. Martino group, towards Lagorai, Juribrutto, Cima Bocche, Marmolada, Civetta, etc. From the Veneggia Pass, continue to the left on a earthy ridge, then on grassy slopes all the way down to a small lake (10 min.). Continue on slight up-and-downs towards the massive north face of the Mulaz, reach the Veneggiotta Pass (2303 m.). The path becomes steeper for about 15 min of walk, containing a slightly exposed stretch equipped with ropes. Arrive to Fochet del Focobon Pass (2291 m.), where the path comes to a crossroad, go right on a long trail that crosses gravel slopes, reaching a snowy basin (50 min). The path becomes even steeper with several passes equipped with ropes, to facilitate climbing on the boulders. In about 60 minutes reach Arduni Pass at 2582 m., passing by a plane, from here in 5 minutes reach Rifugio G. Volpi al Mulaz (2571 m.).
