Trek ring to Rifugio Cacciatore and Rifugio Agostini
Mountain tour • Terme di Comano - Dolomiti di Brenta
Beautiful ring-route from Rifugio Cacciatore to Rifugio Agostini, in Alta Val D'Ambiez uder the Brenta Dolomites
The itinerary between Rifugio Cacciatore and Rifugio Agostini, in the upper Val D'Ambiez, can be covered by means of a very suggestive circular route, at the foot of the Brenta Dolomites, offering unrivalled views over to the incredible pinnacles of Cima Ambiez, Cima Tosa, Cima Brenta, Cime di Ceda, Cima D'Agola, Cima Pratofiorito and Cime di Dalum e Ghez. An incomparable opportunity to discover this breathtaking corner of the Dolomites. Rifugio Al Cacciatore can be reached from San Lorenzo in Banale by a comfortable “jeep shuttle” service up the rather long Val Ambiez. The jeep ride on the narrow mule track is itself an adventure.
If you take the circular detour up to the Forcolotta di Noghera be careful on the stretch connecting trail Nos. 320 and 325b, which is rather steep, very much so at times. Do not leave the clearly beaten track.
The GPS track follows the circular route with the detour towards the Forcolotta di Noghera.
