High altitude excursion among flowery pastures and majestic views of the Pale di San Martino and the Lagorai chain.

The itinerary passes through places that were the scene of the First World War and it is possible to find caves and remains of Italian barracks. Traces of trenches and tangles of barbed wire will often attract the hiker's gaze. At first you will see Lusia lakes from above, being laid on the basin of an ancient volcanic crater.

But not only history: on this path full of suggestions, it can happen to be able to observe eagles in flight. We are in fact always for most of the time over the altitude of 2000 meters.
