Destination

Andalo - Piazza Dolomiti

Turn-by-turn directions

From Piazza Dolomiti you go along via Paganella for about 200 meters; near the departure of the cableway Paganella 2001 you turn right to Rindole; here you turn left going along the asphalted road leading to Palù (almost flat) and to the cross with the main road. At the cross you turn right (direction Fai della Paganella) and you continue on the road until you reach a dirty road and the indications to rifugio Dosson and to Paganella. You continue into the forest and after some kilometers you reach Pian del Dosson, the highest point of the exursion.

On the left side of the cableway station you go down back to Rindole and to Andalo.

If you don't want to walk down, you can catch the gondola from Dosson to Andalo.

Questions and answers

Question from Dan Borrelli · July 22, 2022 · Community
La discesa da Dosson ad Andalo è molto ripida?
Show more
La discesa proposta nell'itinerario è abbastanza ripida, soprattutto nella parte iniziale, su fondo però comodo perché cementato. In alternativa, naturalmente, si può scendere lungo la forestale dell'andata, con pendenza molto più dolce.
Question from Francesco Vitali · September 04, 2020 · Community
si può fare anche con un passeggino da trekking?

Answered by Lorenzo Ventura · September 07, 2020 · APT Dolomiti di Brenta e Paganella
Buongiorno Francesco, sì, l'itinerario è percorribile anche con passeggino da trekking, tenendo presente che ci sono circa 400 metri di dislivello. Si può quindi eventualmente pensare di salire con cabinovia e di scendere a piedi.
