Destination

Sega di Ala

Turn-by-turn directions

From Sega di Ala, proceed towards Villaggio S. Michele and then to Camping al Faggio. The dirt road continues to the left of the campsite and then, having passed the gap, climbs with little slope through the pastures and then descends slightly, turning right, after about 700 metres. From this point it enters a characteristic beech wood and after about 1 km arrives at the entrance to the Busoni.

To resume the tour from the entrance to the tunnels, turn back for about 50 m. and then climb back up the path to the right, following the signs for Monte Corno. The route coincides with the didactic itinerary and then continues further for a short stretch to the Passo della Morte.

From here it is possible to return via Malga delle Cime and then back to Villaggio San Michele, which is shorter, or to continue along the didactic itinerary.
