From Pordoi Pass at 2,239 m take the cable-car to Sass Pordoi (2,948 m) and then go downhill on path no. 627A to the Forcella Pordoi (2,829 m; 20 mins). Now keep going towards the central plateau (path no. 627). Leave path no. 627 and take no. 638 when you come to it. This path takes you up to the top of the Piz Boè mountain without too much difficulty also thanks to metallic ropes placed all long the uphill. You will reach the Capanna Piz Fassa refuge (3,152 m) where you can get refreshments (1 hour 15; 1 hour 35). Now go down the north-west side of the mountain. There is a short rocky section which is equipped with a metal safety cord and wodden stairs and then you reach the Boè refuge (2,871 m) (30 mins; 2 hrs 05). To get back to the Forcella Pordoi you now cut across the base of the Piz Boè on path no. 627 (45 mins; 2 hrs 50). Now climb back up to the cable-car station at Sass Pordoi (20 mins; 3 hrs 10) (path no. 627A).

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.
