The savage Lagorai chain

Arriving in Val di Fiemme from Valle dell'Adige and after crossing Passo di San Lugano, Cimon di Val Moena rises majestically on the horizon

The savage Lagorai chain

On your right, the attractive Val Cadino, famous for the splendid fir-woods covering the northern slopes of Lagorai, climbs towards Passo Manghen (2047 m), which marks the divide with Valsugana. Passo Manghen is the departure point of the first stage of the Trek of Legends (TdL). From the Manghen Hütte Refuge follow path 322A. After some rock walls on which tower splendid examples of Cembro pine trees, including the bare trunk of the Eterno estimated to be at least 1000 years old, you reach, in just over half an hour, Lago delle Buse, a lake encompassed by the northern slope of Mount Ziolera. Skirting this rock wall on apparently flat ground, and then the Pala del Becco, waymarked 322A (then 322), you reach the Forcella di Montalon (2133 m) and from here a long traverse halfway up the northern flank of Montalon, with a wonderful view over Lago delle Stellune lake, leads to Forcella di Val Sorda (2256 m). A short descent takes you to the shores of the cobalt blue of the lake, then path 317 climbs steeply to Forcella di Val Moena (2294 m). From here an endless descent along Val Moena (in July the eastern slope of Cimon di Val Moena is tinged with the extraordinary blood red colour of rhododendron blossom), takes you back to Cavalese. Alternatively you can go the opposite way round and return to Passo Manghen.
