The first day on 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.
