TEST DI SPAn

VANDELLI to FEDERAVECCHIA – VALBONA

Sorapiss group

The route begins in Federavecchia (1368 m), approx. five kilometres lower than Misurina (car park to the left, Hotel Cristallo to the right as you climb). The path is on the level in the direction of the Valbona houses and then bears left to climb up a beech and conifer forest. The route then narrows to a footpath, passes some beautiful waterfalls and climbs steeply towards the imposing Mt. Sorapiss amphitheatre to Rifugio Vandelli on its edge (1928 m). The lake behind is generally considered to be a jewel in the Dolomite crown with surreal colours echoing the pristine purity of primordial waters. The route returns via Orte de Marcuiora along a high altitude footpath which is narrow and exposed at first (metal handrail) until it continues into a forest where the only challenge is the surface roots of its conifer trees. Before Passo Tre Croci the route then turns right along Valbona and returns rapidly to its starting point (last section on the historic uphill road to Misurina).
