Destination

Pradel

Turn-by-turn directions

 

We reach Pradel using the cableway from Molveno; at Pradel, we follow, on the left, path nr. 340 and in about an hour we get to Rifugio Croz dell'Altissimo. From here we continue to Rifugio Selvata (ca. 40 minutes) and then we follow the indication to Rifugio Pedrotti; after having passed the Baito dei Massodi, we'll walk through a wider area and we'll enjoy the view of Brenta Dolomites and of the Campanil Bas. We have to leave the path and to continue along the meadows to reach the Busa degli Sfulmini.

We go back along the same track; at Rifugio Selvata we can go down to Molveno directly, along a steep path and along the fire road through the wild Valle delle Seghe.
