From Rifugio Nuvolau return to the road at Rifugio Averau to avoid a short section of via ferrata. Pass by the Cinque Torri on route 439 (we recommend allowing a bit of time to explore the historic relics among the towers). Then follow this variant of the Alta Via 1 through orchid-filled meadows and patches of shady pine trees on route 437. A series of switchbacks is rewarded by superb views over Cortina and the valley (route 434). The final section is a pleasant stroll to Rifugio Croda da Lago G Palmieri (2066 m).
