Walk from Rifugio Nuvolau to Rifugio Croda da Lago Palmieri via the Cinque Torri and it's hidden historic relics.
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).
