Trail shared by Mario Dominguez

Run from Rifugio Sennes to Rifugio Fanes via Refugio Pederu, admiring excellent views of the Sennes and Fanes massifs.

Features Lake · Views · Waterfall

Overview

Alta Via 1 crosses undulating rocky terrain on easy paths and 4WD tracks constructed for military purposes during World War I. Several privately-run rifugi are touched on before a plunge to a road head, which entails losing an awful lot of height.

Here is a rifugio, where refreshments are probably in order as you need to gird your loins – the day concludes with an extended uphill stretch terminating in a beautiful pasture basin with a choice of comfortable lodgings.

Description

This trek starts out by following the airstrip beside Rifugio Sennes and continues on Trail 7 along an old World War I mountain road. Keep right at the first fork in the path as you follow steep switchbacks on a 500-meter descent to Rifugio Pederü (1,548 meters). Rifugio Pederü is ideally placed for a bite to eat.
