A good alternative to crowded Cortina d'Ampezzo is a night in the Rifugio Faloria.
After a rainy day we start this hike in the afternoon in Cortina. The trail is partly very steep and slippery. After about three hours we arrive at Rifugio Falloria. Just before the rifugio is an old stone house. This is were the movie Cliffhanger was filmed! There are many signs pointing to this house, you cannot miss it 😛
In Rifugio Falloria we have a nice double room. Everything in the room is made out of wood - which leads to strange noises by timber worms in the night 😮 It is quite strange to be the only guests here tonight. But for dinner we have a first class seat right in front of the window looking down to Cortina and the Tofana! The view is just perfect 🙂
