The Three Peaks are the symbol of the holiday region 3 Zinnen in the Dolomites: They belong to the most famous mountains of the Dolomites. The Dolomites were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009. This is a very special accolade that confirms not only the globally unique character and incomparable beauty of this mountainous landscape, but also its integrity.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Auronzohütte/Rifugio Auronzo hut, on the south side of the Three Peaks, the mountain trail no. 101 passes at the Lavaredo hut (2,344 m) and climbs gradually up to the Paternsattel/Forcella Lavaredo (2,454 m). Here you will catch the first stunning glimpse of the 500-metre-high north faces of the Three Peaks (approx. 1 hour to here; recommended even for inexperienced hikers). Descending slightly the trail crosses beneath the Paternkofel/Monte Paterno mountain to the next fork:
a) an easy climb up to the Dreizinnenhütte/Rif. Locatelli hut (2,405 m)
b) at the left, the trail no. 105 continues to the Lange Alpe hut an further on to the Lange Alpe lake. The walk continues at the western side of the Three Peaks to the starting point.

Wenn man den Vergleich zu anderen Wegen, die als leicht bezeichnet werden, bemüht, dann ist dieser Weg eher „Mittel“ einzustufen. Der Autor scheint den Weg an der Drei-Zinnen-Hütte abgebrochen zu haben.

Magnificent scenery and a long time wish now fulfilled. However, the 'Easy' rating given in the description is nothing like the reality. The first third of the hike isn't difficult at all and can be achieved by most people of reasonable fitness. However, the final two thirds can be really strenuous even in ideal weather conditions. I suspect that many middle aged and elderly people that I observed on the walk had perhaps been taken in (fooled) by the 'Easy' and less than accurate rating and were really struggling and unsure of whether to turn back or carry on. I cannot emphasise enough (my opinion of course) is that this walk/hike should NOT be undertaken unless you are in a good to very good physical condition. I would also suggest that the rating be amended to read 'Difficult'. One final point, only by downloading the available GPX file and examining the profile carefully using an application such as Komoot can one fully understand the true and accurate walking profile.
