Turn-by-turn directions

The hike begins in Obereggen (1,550 m) with an ascent on the Oberholz chairlift. The “Latemar. 360°” viewing platform and the “Latemar.panorama” adventure trail [22] are just a few minutes from the Oberholzlift cable car mountain station. The Satteljoch (Feudo Pass) can be reached in one hour. The ascent on the rocky trail on the south side (trail [516]) to the Latemarhütte mountain hut (Rif. Torre di Pisa) (2,670 m) (1½ hours) is an adventurous section of the hike. A delicious meal awaits the successful hikers. A pleasant descent is the reward for the difficult ascent. Return via the northern slope into the Valsordakessel cirque and on the rocky trail on the southside (trail [18]) to the Oberholzlift mountain station. Return to Obereggen on the chairlift.
