Summer time is Dolomites time! This year we decided to walk from North to South through the Pala group. The Pala is a not so famous group, but it is very beautiful and not so full with people. We started at the Passo Rolle. From there we hiked to the Rifugio Mulaz. In the afternoon we hiked up the M. Mulaz at almost 3000m altitude. The next morning we continued to the Rifugio Rosetta. The path was really cool with some climbing and perfect views around. From Rifugio Rosetta we did the Via Ferrata Bolver Lugli (C/D). It is 500 metres in altitude and the view down to San Martino di Castrozza is amazing! It finishes next to a bivouac. We walked back to the rifugio and stayed for another night. The next morning we continued to Rifugio Pradidali. There we took the Via Ferrata Porton (C) and Via Ferrata Velo (B/C) to the Rifugio Velo. Rifugio Velo is a very peaceful place. There were only very few other people and we had sunshine for the whole afternoon. We spend the whole afternoon on the sunlounger 😀 The next morning we walked back down to San Martino di Castrozza. This was another perfect vacation in Italy! 🙂
The Marwees Traverse was on top of my wish list for years and finally I did it! 🙂 For the last years I was afraid to do this hike alone because it is marked in blue which means that it is more difficult than an ordinary hiking path.
I started in Wasserauen and went up to Bogarten. From there the path becomes smaller and steep and very exposed. You walk on the side of the Marwees and later on the grassy ridge. The view all around is really amazing! I was the only person there during this time and I could enjoy every meter of it! The Grassy Marwees Traverse is one of the best tours in the Alpstein massive and I will definitely do it again! 🙂
