Destination

Hut La Montanara

Turn-by-turn directions

 

Almost unknown, but spectacular tour; from Hut La Montanara (which we reach easily using the cableway and the chairlift from Molveno) we follow the signs to cima Croz dell'Altissimo. Almost on the top, we'll find the indications to Passo Lasteri: here we turn right and left after some meters, into the meadows to the cross. There is no clear path, but it is to walk through the meadows.

Way back on the same track.
