Dos dei Branchi is a small peak that offers an extraordinary view over Val di Fiemme.
The itinerary, not difficult, is suitable for everyone and takes place on large snow-covered ridges. The stretch that leads to Baito della Bassa is frequented, therefore tracks are visible almost all the time, while the next one that climbs to Dos dei Branchi is less known.

Safety guidelines

The itinerary is not subject to avalanches, so it’s accessible also after heavy snowfalls.

 

THE 10 RULES FOR HIKERS 

  1. Prepare your itinerary beforehand
  2. Choose an itinerary that suits your physical abilities
  3. Choose suitable clothes and equipment
  4. Check the weather forecast
  5. Hiking by yourself is more risky; if this is the case, take a mobile phone with you
  6. Leave information about your itinerary and your expected return time
  7. If you are not sure about your itinerary, contact an Alpine Guide
  8. Pay attention to signposts and directions that you find along your way
  9. Do not hesitate in going back if you feel too tired
  10. In case of emergency call 112

Remember, snowpack stability is subject to sudden and unforeseeable changes and shifts. Always check the local avalanche before departure and make sure you gather all possible information concerning current conditions from the local Mountain Guides. GPS tracks are merely indicative of the more standard routes but must not be followed blindly without first checking current slope and terrain conditions. Correct orientation may be a problem at times along the higher stretches of this route due to fog or low cloud cover.
