It is the main route to get to the Rifugio Velo della Madonna. The mid-to-high section is quite panoramic and you need to take care going over the "Lasta Moia” which is a characteristic crossing on an oblique ledge with metal cables.

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.

Destination

Malga Civertaghe

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Malga Civertaghe car park, after a short unpaved section, you go immediately into the woods, taking route 713 which rises up steeply, crossing some clearings halfway up.  The route then continues opposite the steep rock faces of the Pala mountains, Cima Val di Roda, Sass Maor and Cima della Madonna.  You cross a dried-up river bed and continue uphill. Continue on a long scree until you reach the Cadinot Sora Ronz pass at about 2,050 metres. The gradient gets increasingly steep and here the path consists only of rocks, boulders and stones. You then finally get to the hardest section: the path equipped with ropes and metal ladders on the sheer lava rocks. After a final ascent (which actually involves climbing a short distance), you then arrive at the rifugio, built on a natural terrace at the feet of the Cima della Madonna peak. The way back is via the route you came up.
