The excursion leads from Bocchetta Campiglia - Rifugio Achille Papa to the 'Porte del Pasubio' via the Route of the 52 Tunnels or Route of the First Army. The tunnels built during the First World War allowed the supply of the Italian troops stationed on the Pasubio, with a very daring path sheltered from enemy actions. Once you have reached the General Achille Papa refuge at Porte del Pasubio (1935 m), you can go up to Cima Palon along the historic tricolor path and return to Bocchetta Campiglia or Passo Xomo along the "Strada degli Scarubbi".

Rifugio Generale Achille Papa

Safety information

There are no particular difficulties, if not the length and the difference in height, however, we must pay attention not to lean over the very daring road and not to enter secondary tunnels, often semi-collapsed or dangerous. The bottom of the path is always good, but especially in the tunnels some sections are slippery due to the continuous dripping of water.

The practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and therefore depends on natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this sheet may have changed. Before leaving, find out about the status of the route by contacting the hut manager about your route, the mountain guides, the visitor centers of the natural parks and the tourist offices.

Sehr schöne Tour, über den Klettersteig rauf und durch die Gallerie runter. Leider sind die meisten Seitenwege und Nebenstollen mit Exkrementen übersäht. Schade, dass manche nicht einmal 2-3 Stunden aushalten, ohne irgendwo hinzusch....
