From Rifugio Fanes, continue along the AV1 route 11 passing shimmering Lago di Limo (2157 m).  As you ascend the slopes of the Fanes group pause to admire the views to the southern mountain ranges and Marmolada. Crossing the grassy bowl of the Passo Tagéda, take the route 20B and climb the slopes of Forcella del Lago/Lechi* (2486 m). There is a steep descent on a path through scree, to Lago Lagazoi (2182 m). ***Please pay attention to the notes in your guide book and also below regarding this pass – it is quite a steep descent.***

From Lago Lagazuoi, ascend on a zig-zag path (turning onto route 401) to the rifugio that lies at 2752 m. Here in the Parco Naturale delle Dolomiti d’Ampezzo you’ll see remnants of the Austrian- Italian WWI front line. On the final ascent up to the rifugio, stop at the open-air ‘Museo all’aparto della Grande Guerra’ with its interpretation boards.

Beautiful walk. Bit of a slog on final stretch to Rif. Lagazuoi even with good views. Route 20B closed due to rock fall risk.
