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.
You will be dropped off at Passo Valparola, from here start your days walk along trail nr. 24, direction Setsas summit and on to Pralongiá.
The narrow trail descends to a junction. At this point, trail nr. 24 bears right, as the trail continues to ascend and descend along the north side of the Setsas peak.
Reach a cave from where the trail climbs steeply to the next junction, from where you reach the summit of the Setsas (2158 m). Proceed on trail nr. 24 as you arrive at the ridge, Les Pizades to then descend towards Störes and Pralongiá. At the fork, continue on path nr. 23, which takes you to the Rifugio Pralongiá (2 h 30 min.)
Soak in the views from the Rifugio over the nearby Dolomites before starting your descent to Corvara (1h 30min.) via trail nr. 25. When you pass the Ütia Punta Trieste hut, you come to a junction. Continue on the right on trail nr. 24 descending into Corvara.
We recommend wearing hiking boots that are well broken-in, plus a rain jacket and waterproof trousers in wet weather, as well as taking sun cream and a hat on nicer days.
In your information pack, you’ll find a detailed list of all the required hiking gear, including some good hiking boots, appropriate clothing, a rain jacket and a backpack.
