Majestic scenery over the entire Ortles-Cevedale range and the Stelvio National Park. Cevedale is the meeting point of the mountains, which divide the Val de la Mare, the Val di Sole (Trentino), the Val Cedac in Valfurva (Lombardy) and Val Martello (Alto Adige).

Author’s recommendation

Cevedale offers an immense panorama: all around the peaks, you can admire the glaciers, towards the northeast The Ortles and the Gran Zebrù, to the south-west the Palon de la Mare and Monte Vioz.

Starting point is the Malgamare car park, (1.972m) which can be reached from Cogolo di Pejo on an asphalted road (10 km). From the car park take the SAT 102 which flanks the Malgamare (2.301m) then climb through the pine-woods to the panoramic plain known as Pian Venezia (Stelvio National Park). From here the rifugio just comes into view and the path continues to the right of the valley until finally reaching Rifugio Cevedale G.Larcher (2.608m).

From the rifugio follow the SAT 103 on a slight descent until the crossroads where there is a sign indicating «Percorso dei Ghiacciai». Continue uphill until arriving to the glacier itself. From here, paying great attention to the many crevices, the trail winds its way in the direction of Monte Rosole. Just before Rosole follow the icy ridge to the right which leads directly to the cross on the peak of Monte Cevedale (3.679m).
