Destination

Doss Pelà

Turn-by-turn directions

Starting from Andalo centre, take the cable car and reach the top of Mount Paganella (2.125 mt.); following path no. 605 until Passo di S. Antonio (1.893 mt.) then carry on along path no. 602 which leads to the top of Mount Canfedin (2.034 mt.). From here the itinerary goes on to Passo S. Giacomo (1.963 mt.) first  and Malga Covelo and mountain hut Bait del Germano then. If it’s your lucky day  along the walk it may happened to meet some marmots living in this area!

To return to Andalo it is possible to take the dirt road  (1h + cable car from Doss Pelà) or if you want to carry on to Molveno, take path no. 602 to Passo S. Giovanni (1.667 mt) and then path no. 612 (2,30h – no pushchairs allowed). Alternative itinerary from Andalo: take the cable car to Doss Pelà and then along the dirt road following the signs to Bait del Germano (1,30h – suitable also for families with pushchairs).

Percorso molto bello, peccato però che nel percorso di ritorno a causa delle “navette” della baita vicina, queste sollevavano molta polvere che a 2000 metri di altezza, venendo da Roma, non ci aspettavamo di trovare..

Attenzione traccia errata. Giro molto bello con visuali sulla val d'Adige e gruppo del Brenta. Attenzione, la traccia presente sul sito é errata. Seguire il sentiero 610. Molto bello anche da fare al rovescio partendo dalla telecabina fino a cima Paganella.
