Author’s recommendation

Avoid the queue: purchase online your ticket and go directly to turnstile. Choose the stage and pay with your credit card. You will receive by email your ticket (you can print the ticket or save it in your smartphone), scan it on the orange scanner on the turnstile located at the gates of the lift.

Turn-by-turn directions

Easy, but steep walk to Malga Fai, recently completely renewed. You can easily get to Meriz using the chairlift from Fai della Paganella/Santel; from Meriz you walk along an easy fire road up to Malga Fai. The road is steep, but it does not present any difficulty and therefore it is suitable for families with children too.
