Take the bus to the start of your walk,  the Alta Via 1 starts with a pleasant walk around Lake Braies, before tackling a steep ascent into the mountains and to Rifugio Biella (2327 m) from where you can take an optional hike to the summit of Croda del Becco (2812 m).  Alternatively, continue on the mountain track (route 6) down to Rifugio Sennes, located at 2126 m with panoramic views over Croda Rossa (3246 m), Cristallo (3221 m), Sorapis (3205 m), and Tofana (3243 m).

This is a tough day if you are re-adjusting to long distance trails, but it is ultimately very rewarding.

Autorentipp

It’s a good idea to double-check the bus station in Cortina before you set off again, to check the latest timetables locally, so you are prepared 

The first part of the trail is extremely rocky, dry, and without any shade, make sure you have plenty of water with you.

Sicherheitshinweise

Today you may be walking past a few different areas where cows graze. Although generally very docile and used to walkers, keep your distance and never turn your back on a cow that is behaving strangely or aggressive. Be particularly vigilant around cows with calves.

Watch the short term local weather forecasts. Avoid high altitude hiking when the weather is bad. There are plenty of trails in the valleys, that allow you to reach a village quickly if bad weather sets in.

Ausrüstung

Such is the way of Alpine hiking that you need to be prepared for all seasons and weathers; sturdy hiking boots, warm clothes and a waterproof/wind-break layer are all required, as is plenty of sun cream and a healthy respect for the sun.

Walking poles will be a big advantage on some of these ascents and descents.

Ensure your phone is fully charged; if you doubt the battery will last throughout the hike it might be beneficial to bring a power bank.

This walk is isolated with few opportunities to buy food or water so be sure to bring enough with you.

Pls could you confirm if you need an online reservation for the bus from Cortina to Lago di Braies for the start of the walk. A review here states you need one but I have been in touch with Cortina Express who say no reservation is needed! So important to get to the start of the walk in time to complete the first day without rushing an dnot feel stressesd on Day 1! thank you

Hi Shirley. We went in 2019 — preCOVID. Requirements may have changed. If you can make the reservation online, it seems like a good idea. I’m pretty sure we just bought them at the bus station. The hotel staff was helpful, too. There was a bus change in that trip, too. It seemed like it might be complicated, but when we pulled up in the bus, the next one was right there. The locals are helpful! Enjoy!

Good start. Surprised a bit by the numbers of people on the trail. Very varied terrain and views. Bus 442 to Lago de Braies requires online reservation or purchase; no purchase on the bus itself.
