STAGE 4 - FROM RIFUGIO LAVAREDO TO MALGA RA STUA

A long but pleasant hike reaching Malga Ra Stua.

STAGE 5 - FROM MALGA RA STUA TO RIFUGIO COL GALLINA

The fifth day of the “Cortina Dolomiti Ultra Trekking” trek takes you to the mountain lodge Rifugio Col Gallina, and it includes a second variant that simplifies and shortens the route a little, and leads to the mountain lodge Rifugio Dibona.

STAGE 6 - FROM RIFUGIO COL GALLINA TO RIFUGIO CRODA DA LAGO

The route continues for the sixth stage to reach the mountain lodge Rifugio Croda da Lago, covering about 14.5 km amidst panoramic views and enchanting blue lakes.

STAGE 7 - FROM RIFUGIO CRODA DA LAGO TO THE CENTRE OF CORTINA

The last day of the “Cortina Dolomiti Ultra Trekking” trek takes you back to the starting-point in the centre of Cortina d'Ampezzo, after having walked for about 130 km with a total ascent of 6,700 m.

Mount Fumo or Rauchkofel

An Austro-Hungarian outpost during the Great War, this is a secondary peak between the valleys Val San Sigismondo and Val Fonda: a theatre of fierce combat, it is of particular interest for the exposed route and the presence of military garrisons.

The hidden cable car on Mount Forame

On the Mount Cristallo group there is a secondary peak that can be reached using the Renè De Pol equipped route: this is the Forame peak. But there is an alternative route which follows the cable car stations and, running between a trench and a small fort, leads to the destination.

The Polin ledge

This route follows the path of Alberto Polin, a local soldier who, during the First World War, discovered and conquered a semi-concealed ledge that provided access to a strategic point overlooking the Travenanzes valley from the Tofane mountains, enabling the Italian troops to organise their supplies.

El Beco Longo

An unexpected peak in the enchanted forest near the Rocchette di Prendera and Ruòibes (or Zoco) crags, that can even be reached from Cortina by electric bicycle.

Mount Taburlo

A peak situated at the southern extremity of the Val di Fanes valley, Mount Taburlo is an unfamiliar but evocative mountain, first climbed in 1906.

The Fanes cascades

Less well known than the waterfalls further downstream, the Fanes cascades are well worth visiting, offering a pleasant (though not always easy) walk in the forest that ends near the small mountain hut Malga Fanes. In the morning, the location Sbarco de Fanes can also be reached by jeep.

Mount Rudo

The Mount Rudo hike takes you to perhaps one of the largest and best-preserved lines of World War I fortifications. From the top of the mountain, there are excellent views of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo peaks.

The San Marco rock

This unusual route near the Tre Cime di Lavaredo peaks enables you to see some of the trenches and forts built by the Italians during the First World War.

Punta Nera

Punta Nera is a peak that dominates the southern entrance to Cortina, and it can be seen from the entire Ampezzo valley. However, as it is lower than the mountains Sorapiss and Marcora, very few hikers consider it a worthwhile peak.
