Rifugio Malga Cianci, in the heart of Val Contrin, is set on a green meadow with extraordinary views of the Fassa Dolomites and of the pinnacles of the Marmolada massif.

Author’s recommendation

With the shuttle bus service (a paid service) it is possible to reach Baita Locia and “save” a 300 m cumulative elevation gain.
