Start
SS 48 del Passo Falzarego.
Arrival
Dal Rif. Bai de Dones un servizio pulman gratuito riporta nuovamente al Passo Falzarego e al parcheggio.
From the top of the Col Gallina chairlift, by Falzarego pass, walk east along path no. 441. Traverse without losing height to a flat karst plateau where, in summer, Lago di Limides forms. This is a beautiful and highly characteristic alpine lake. Continue SE slightly uphill towards Monte Averau past undulating terrain between gullies and rocky outcrops. Reach Forcella Averau at 2390m and then descend north towards Alpe de Potor and the chairlift. Close to the Potor chairlift a power cable leads down to the valley bottom: follow this directly down to the refuge Bai de Dones.
