Take the cable car from Campitello (Ciampedèl) (1,448 m) to Col Rodella. Then go downhill on path no. 529 to the Sela Rodela (2,318 m; 15 mins). Here you take path no. 557 which is named the Friedrich August Weg after the King of Saxony, a keen botanist. The path is easy and runs across the lower slopes of the Sasso di Levante and the Sasso Piatto (Sas Piat) mountains. You will pass the Friedrich August refuge (2,298 m) and the Sandro Pertini refuge (2,300 m).Then you will reach the Sasso Piatto refuge on the grassy saddle known as Giogo di Fassa or Jouf de Fascia (2,300 m) (2 hrs; 2 hrs 15). Now go straight on path no. 594/4 and proceed along the crest of dark volcanic rock - Cresta di Siusi or Ores de Fascia - to the Pas de Duron (1 hour; 3 hrs 15). The panorama is superb with the Alpe di Siusi in the foreground and the Odle mountains behind. From the Pas de Duron you can make the climb up to the Alpe di Tires refuge (2,440 m) in 1 hour. The dirt road up to the Alpe di Tires refuge is steep, particularly the last section, as it climbs up past the Molignon mountain to the left and the Denti di Terrarossa to the right. The way back starts off from the Pas de Duron, so make your way back there. Take the dirt road which leads to Campitello (Ciampedèl) down through the Val Duron (path no. 532). Initially you will go through the high pastures, then along the flat valley floor to the Micheluzzi refuge (1,850 m) (1 hour 30; 4 hrs 45). From here the road is fairly steep as you complete the last section to reach Campitello (1,448 m) (45 mins; 5 hrs 30).

Safety information

For your hikes in mountain always choose itineraries in accordance with your technical and physical abilities. Consult maps of the area to visit and check the best way to follow. If you walk in group including slower hikers, always calculate longer average times to cover the distances.

Preferably do not hike alone in mountain. Otherwise tell someone the itinerary that you are going to follow and let him know when you are back.

Check the weather forecast and, while hiking, constantly pay attention to the evolution of the weather.

If you do not feel safe, give up. In mountain, sometimes, it is better to surrender than to face the dangers deriving from bad weather conditions or from difficulties superior to one’s limits. In advance look for alternative itineraries to get back.

Bring rubbish back with you. Respect the flora and fauna. Remain on the marked tracks, avoiding to follow shortest ways, in order to avoid causing damages to vegetation and the territory. Respect local cultures andtraditions, always bearing in mind that you are a guest.
