Rifugio Malga Cianci, in the heart of Val Contrin, is set on a green meadow with extraordinary views of the Fassa Dolomites and of the pinnacles of the Marmolada massif.

Author’s recommendation

With the shuttle bus service (a paid service) it is possible to reach Baita Locia and “save” a 300 m cumulative elevation gain.

Turn-by-turn directions

Behind the downhill station of the Ciampac ski lift (1466m) you take the forest road marked with trail number 602. You follow it along the path which, at times, crosses the forest road.

After a flat or slightly sloping section, the road passes beyond the Ruf (river) de Contrin  and continues briefly until you reach Rifugio Malga Cianci (1825m) located on the left hand side.

To return, you follow the same route backwards.
