Conca degli Sfulmini, where Rifugio Alimonta is located, is the Dolomiti di Brenta’s most beautiful amphitheatre and one of the most scenic spots in the entire Dolomites. Which means that, if you want to enjoy a true ‘Dolomites experience’, all you have to do is discover for yourself this fantastic place which also happens to be on the ‘Sentiero delle Bocchette’, the Alps’ most famous ‘via ferrata’.

Turn-by-turn directions

The hike starts from Vallesinella where there is, quite conveniently, a characteristic mountain hut. Take trail 317. The stretch of the trail across a wood is characterized by the presence in some places of roots and steps. After walking for some 45 minutes, you reach Rifugio Casinei (1825 m).

Have a well-earned rest, and then take trail 318 (also marked ‘Rif. Brentei’) which climbs diagonally above the tree line to a fork called ‘bivio Valle del Fridolin’ (2043 m). Stay on trail 318 (this stretch of the trail is called ‘Sentiero Bogani’) and follow the signs for ‘Rifugio Brentei – Rifugio Alimonta’. The initial slight descent is followed by a few undulations. You go through picturesque stretches where the path has been hewn into the rock. There are footbridges to cross and tunnels to go through. The route then becomes steep again. It takes you past the amazing east faces of the Punte di Campiglio to a panoramic platform on the right side (seen as going downstream) of Val Brenta Alta, where ‘Rifugio Maria e Alberto ai Brentei’ is situated. The view from this very picturesque hut is jaw-dropping. The magical scenery is dominated by the massive east face of Crozzon di Brenta and by the impressive Cima Tosa, the Dolomiti di Brenta’s highest peak.

After a rest at the hut, proceed to the left and follow the signs for Rifugio Alimonta (trail 323). The climb is fairly steep right from the start, but the grandiose scenery is well worth the effort. The trail finally takes you to the spectacular Conca degli Sfulmini. The hut is located on a narrow rocky ledge which also happens to be an extraordinarily panoramic terrace since it is surrounded by huge and slender Dolomites needles such as Torre di Brenta, Gli Sfulmini, Torre Molveno, Cima Brenta, Cima Mandron, Punte di Campiglio. A truly unmissable vista.

Return to the starting place by the same route.

Getting there

Whether you come from the Giudicarie or Val di Sole, the instructions are the same: take the SS239 (Val Rendena State Road) to Madonna di Campiglio . Enter the village from the south (if you come from the Val Rendena: before the tunnel) and follow the signs (on your right) for Vallesinella. At the roundabout, turn again right for Vallesinella. The upkeep of the road is the responsibility of the ‘Parco Adamello-Brenta’ authorities which also decide when to make it accessible to motor vehicles (the road is accessible to vehicles before 7.30 a.m.).
