Today's varied route follows the Dolomite Höhenweg trail/Alta via Dolomiti, maintaining a roughly constant elevation, then descend to the beautifully located Lago de Foses.

After a short climb, a steep descent brings you to the lovely Valon Scuro. On the other side of the valley, climb back up towards the Lago Le Casun.  An old military gravel road winds it way up to to Fodara Vedla, a picturesque village and a nice place for a break. The gravel road continues and after a long, steep and spectacular descent to Rifugio Pederü, start the final ascent to Fanes on a well marked mountain trail. If the weather is bad, the route can be shortened by taking the dirt road that goes directly to Rifugio Fodara Vedla, then on to Rifugio Pederù avoiding the lakes.
