In front of the Marmolada E. Castiglioni Refuge, take the trail no. 601 which, on a long traverse through breathtaking scenery, at a constant altitude of about 2,400 metres, leads to the Pordoi Pass. This section of the itinerary is called "Viel dal Pan", as it was once the preferred route of the itinerant vendors from Val di Fassa to the Livinallongo hollow. Once reached the Pordoi Pass, it is worthy to take the cable car to Sass Pordoi, the Terrace of the Dolomites. After returning to the Pordoi Pass by cable car, follow the forest track that leads to "Pecol" (otherwise, go up on the grass from Pordoi Pass to the Fredarola Refuge, and then go on flat towards the Belvedere Refuge and then slightly upwards to the top station of the cable car that goes down to "Pecol"). Go back to Canazei by cabin lift. From Canazei, the walk along the river "Avisio" leads to the locality "Ischia" in Campitello, where you will find the valley station of the cable car that goes up to "Col Rodella" in just a few minutes.

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.
