Two Pearls of the Mountain
Paneveggio lies in a large clearing at an altitude of 1500 metres, with a magnificent view of Lagorai, to the south, and the spectacular towers of Pale di San Martino, outshone by the steep Cimon della Pala, to the east
Path 337 starts from the Pulesi car park, on the edge of the artificial lake of Forte Buso, and goes up a very long climb, which steepens towards the end, to Forcella Ceremana (2428 m), with an altitude gain of almost 1000 metres. From here tracks going eastwards lead to Colbricon (2602 m), the last porphyry buttress of Lagorai overlooking the magnificent Pale, which can be admired in their completeness. The climb to the peak requires a minimum of experience because there are no signs and you have to follow the passageway between porphyry rocks and clefts. The descent to Passo di Colbricon is also difficult for the same reason (you walk on unstable gravel), but much more obvious and logical. Much easier is the short stretch to the Colbricon lakes (1927 m) where the refuge of the same name is open in summer. Returning to Passo Colbricon, a well-defined path descends northwards in the lovely larch forests to Paneveggio. From the Colbricon lakes, those who decide to continue the Trek of Legends towards San Martino di Castrozza will enter path 348 that descends southwards to Malga Ces and then to the main tourist resort of Primiero.
