This easy hike with little variation in altitude goes along gravel roads and wide trails across a high plateau typical of the Dolomites, with Alpine pasture land and inviting mountain huts. The panoramic views are amazing, ranging from the local Dolomites to the Marmolada glacier and the Austrian Alps.
