Averau, Cortina d'Ampezzo

(5/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
Averau is the highest mountain of the Nuvolau Group in the Dolomites, located in the Province of Belluno, northern Italy. It lies between the Falzarego Pass and the Giau Pass. The mountain is usually climbed from its northern face, which is less steep than its other faces, by the Averau ferrata. The view from the summit takes in many of the Dolomitic giants, including Monte Civetta, Monte Pelmo, Antelao and Sorapiss.

  • I suggest a route that does not require the equipment to get to the top of Averau, 2650. For those with leg and want to work hard! It starts from Giau, you take the 443 under the RaGusela, after 45 mn you reach under the Nuvolau and Averau: we come to that and you come to the refuge Averau. From here, take the 419 to get pond Limedes ... fatigue, Yes, but worth it

  • This mountain looks impenetrable when you view it from the top of the chair lifts, but there is a great Via Ferrata route up which isnt too long and gives a real sense of achievement. It is just hard ...  more »
  • Beautiful dolomite group of top village Nuvolau-2647 m Averau and whose position permits a wide panoramic view and excellent. A destination for rock climbers to the Summit can be reached from Forcella Nuvolau too for the "normal route", it still requires adequate experience and preparation, and-in short length equipped-via ferrata equipment. Alternatively you can climb with little effort and without difficulty to the neighbouring peak of Nuvolau (2575 m) which offers a view just as spectacular.
