Stage 6 Dolomiti Trek King - Towards the Roda de Vael
Stage 6 from Gardeccia to Costalunga Pass. 6-day self guided hiking tour at high altitude, from refuge to refuge. Discover the Dolomites in Val di Fassa by walking on its most beautiful peaks!
From the Gardeccia hollow, take trail no. 540 to "Ciampedìe", which offers a magnificent view over the entire Vajolet Valley. Continue along the path no. 545, also called "Alta Via dei Fassani", which leads to the Baita Marino Pederiva and Roda di Vael refuges (2,280 m). Alternatively, from Ciampedìe, go up to "Pra Martin" and follow the "Vial da le feide" (namely the sheep path) at the foot of the "Cigolade" (the path is very panoramic and presents some slightly exposed stretches). From the "Ciampaz" Saddle, in the nearest of Baita Marino Pederiva Refuge (2,273 m), trail no. 548 descends to the Costalunga Pass. Alternatively, continue along path no. 549 to the monument to Theodor Christomannos, who devised the "Dolomite Road: Bolzano, Cortina, Dobbiaco", and then follow path no. 539 to the Paolina Refuge. From here, make your way down to the Costalunga Pass walking on path no. 552 or taking the chair lift. You can then return to Val di Fassa by the bus service SAD.
