Wander through larch forest and then climb to the alpine lake Lech Parom. Here, the vast and majestic Fanes upland and prairies gradually turn to sheer vertical rock faces, surrounded by the stunning peaks of the Dolomites.

It is possible to avoid the steep climb by taking a more gradual trail and there is also the possibility to descend to Val di Medesc through a narrow and stony channel bringing you to La Crusc. The last stretch of your walk crosses the Armentara with its wide meadows which are characteristic of this region.

Return to Val Badia where you can enjoy some of the delicious local specialties, including carne salada and polenta.

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

 

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
