  • The waterfalls formed by the Rio Fanes are places of indescribable beauty and high environmental value, which all have the advantage of being able to choose the most suitable to your taste and ability, it being understood that the main route consists of a quiet walk without the slightest difficulty, well that growing for convenient dirt road, semipianeggiante in the first part and gradually climb in the second. Board of Park at Felizòn Bridge (approximately 5 km north of Cortina) and here, at an altitude of 1320 m, walk along the Boite torrent up to Pian de Loa (1350 m), where we meet a junction well marked by signs. 1) the wide trail on the left door before al Ponte Outo, from which you can admire the impressive ravine formed by the Rio Travenanzes to the confluence with the Rio Fanes, then at the picnic area of the falls (1380 m)-visible though just getting off right ledge equipped- Finally the spectacular high falls or disembarkation de Fanes (1700 m). 2) instead of the path to the right leads to the Belvedere, small wooden terrace from where you have a magnificent view on the integral Low Waterfalls rushing. In and around both falls, high and low, develop trails, with various exposed stretches and slippery, to be addressed only if sufficiently experienced and via ferrata equipment (inquire beforehand about routes and difficulty). Apart from these challenging trails, the other two routes that I described are simple and suitable for everyone, including families with children. Untouched nature, peace and beautiful scenery in natural park of the Ampezzo Dolomites: a half as beautiful as few, absolutely recommended and just as absolutely to BE OBSERVED.
