Suggested period

The lonely and unknown Lagorai trekking leads through a wild nature, across lot of tiny mountain lakes and flowery meadows. Along the whole way you can admire beautiful landscapes on the Dolomites mountains such as Latemar, Rosengarten, Sella, Pale di San Martino and the big south wall of Marmolada.

This particular trekking on volcano rocks amazes for the variety of colours, the different shades of green of pastures and trees, the blue of rivers and lakes and the pink of the rhododendrons which blossom in July, are a strong contrast with the dark colour of volcano rocks.

Last stage of this trekking goes through the Natural Park of Paneveggio where you can see the famous red spruces, whose resonance wood was used from the famous violin maker Stradivari.

Starting point
Passo Manghen

Along the way you can find some mountain dairy used in summer for the alpine pastures of cows and goats and seldom other trekker, normally doing daily excursions.

The first night in the tent near the Lagorai Lakes gives you a full immersion in the nature.

The second day leads you more deeply into this wild area of rocks and pastures, ending in the comfortable Cauriol mountain hut or in Malga Sadole (alpine dairy)
