On a clear day, the summit offers a view over the Cortina D'Ampezzo valley and the peaks of the Dolomites. Reward yourself with a hot or cold drink at the inviting cafe at the summit. Pick up a map of all of the area's marked trails at the local tourism office.

  • I was literally speechless and dumbfounded when the Dolomites began coming on top of this step, simply spectacular! When the sky is clear is a real picture, I guess too, which is a real show the starry sky at night. Just Wonderful!
