Rifugio Roda di Vael - from Ciampedie
The characteristic Rifugio Roda di Vael hut can be reached from Ciampedie with an easy and picturesque walk. Its starting point is conveniently connected with the Fassa valley floor by the fast Ciampedie cableway, allowing to quickly reach high altitudes (1997 m). That is the reason why this excursion is also suitable for families with children, provided they are trained to walk (3.00-4.00 hours). The environment you go through to reach the mountain hut is wonderful. The trail’s initial part in the wood gives way to a lovely final part, between lush green meadows lying at the foot of stunning Dolomite peaks, with the impressive "Mugoni" bulk standing out among them.
