Destination

Molveno

Turn-by-turn directions

We go to Doss Pelà using the cableway from Andalo and then we continue on foot on the right, in direction of Paganella 2 (F 12 ex 610); when we reach a cross, we follow the indications to Passo San Giacomo (F 14, ex 610), leaving the fire road. The way gives wonderful views on the Brenta Dolomites, UNESCO Natural Heritage, and along an almost flat track, we'll reach passo San Giacomo, then Malga Covelo and passo San Giovanni. From here, you can go down to Andalo or to Molveno, along a steep path with beautiful views on the lake.
