This tour circumnavigates the majestic Monte Mulaz, in the Pale di San Martino Group, and is sparsely frequented, despite being one of the most fascinating itineraries in all the Dolomites. The route initially winds its way up the emerald green Val Venegia, which soon offers breathtaking views of the vertical walls of Cimon della Pala, Cima Vezzana and Bureloni. It then climbs uphill to the foot of the majestic huge Dolomite walls of the Campanile di Valgrande and Cima Focobon, near Passo di Mulaz. After touching Rifugio Volpi al Mulaz, the last stretch of this circular route passes beneath the green Cima Venegiota, where there’s a pass back into the Val Venegia. An immensely rewarding itinerary for skilled trekkers. From Rifugio Volpi al Mulaz hut you can climb to the incredible summit of Monte Mulaz ( 2903 m ), a scenic balcony offering unique views; this stretch, however, requires careful treading and a good mountain trekking experience.  

Author’s recommendation

From Rifugio Volpi al Mulaz you can climb up to the fabulous summit of Monte Mulaz ( 2903 m ), a scenic balcony offering unique breathtaking views. Take a track (no SAT markings) that requires careful treading and the capacity to move on rocky and exposed terrain. This alternative route is reserved to expert and well-trained trekkers. If you want to go right up to the summit, follow these indications: from the pass take the track that climbs up on a gravel deposit against the east flank of Monte Mulaz. The track bends left onto a sort of ridge, from where you can reach a detritic ledge which you can follow crossing from the left to the right and thus circumventing a rocky spur. At the end of the ledge climb on the left up to the summit, from which there are breathtaking views across to the Pale di San Martino Group and the entire Val Venegia ( 1000 m below). Trace your steps back to Passo Mulaz.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the car park in Val Venegia (near the mountain dairy with the same name or the Pian dei Casoni) follow the forest road slightly uphill along the side of the valley. Looking to the left you can see the huge west flank of Monte Mulaz, a majestic wall of Dolomitic limestone; looking south-east you can see the vertical flanks of Cimon della Pala, Cima Vezzana and Bureloni, arranged according to a spectacular succession of pinnacles, towers and walls.

Pass by the “Malga Venegiota” mountain dairy and, shortly after, leave the dirt road for trail No. 710 on the left, which, after a short stretch through a sparse wood, climbs steeply along the west flanks at the base of Monte Mulaz.

Climbing steeply, you reach the large gravel deposits at the foot of the enormous Campanile di Val Grande. Here, at about 2370 m, trail No. 710 bends sharply north-east towards Passo di Mulaz at 2616 m . The surrounding scenery here is impressive and very impactful. Beyond the pass it’s a short trek to Rifugio Volpi al Mulaz (2556 m); [NB: at the pass, you can take the alternative route to the summit of Monte Mulaz: see the notes below].

After a short rest at the mountain hut, continue gently downhill along trail No. 710 for a short stretch, being very careful to take trail No. 751 on the left (heading northwards) towards Passo di Focobon.

Trail No. 751 descends rather steeply, with several changes in direction, down to 2200 m , from where the oblique incline becomes gentler to the “Passo di Focobon” ( 2326 m ).  

Continue along trail No. 751, which cuts through the inclined green slopes, to the nearby “Passo di Venegiota” (2299 m). Here you must be very careful not to continue along trail No. 751, but to take a usually well-beaten track that descends steeply from the pass to the foot of the south flank of Cima Venegiota. At about 2210 m ignore a trail branching off on the right and follow the straight trail (down into the valley – gps track) or the one on the left, both of which join trail No. 749 further down.

Once on trail No. 749 (at about 2050 m ) follow it along the left down to the initial trail in Val Venegia, tracing your steps back along the forest road to the departure point.

NB: the stretch between Passo di Venegiota and trail No. 749 is not difficult and is usually well-beaten; however, it is not SAT marked (a GPS navigating device can be of help here); if you have any doubts and are afraid of getting lost, from Passo di Venegiota continue along trail No. 751 up to Forcella Venegia, from where you can take trail No. 749 on the left. The route is slightly longer, but you certainly won’t lose your way.  

Getting there

Follow the “SS48 Valli di Fiemme e Fassa” national road up to Predazzo. Climb in the direction of Passo Rolle – Passo Valles. After Paneveggio turn left towards Passo Valles to Pian dei Casoni at the entrance to Val Venegia. Drive up Val Venegia possibly to the car park of Malga Venegia.
