This beautiful and challenging tour suitable for experienced walkers and experts takes us to visit the places where he lived thousands of years ago the Man of Mondeval whose skeleton found just Mondeval de Sora is now kept at the Museum Vittorino Cazzetta. The start of the hike is on the left of the main road 251 in the cross country track area of ??the neighborhoods to Palui, 1 km after the village of Pescul. Take the path CAI 466 that leads into the forest, until you cross the bridge over the Rio Cordon and arrive in the locality Piera de Auta, at an altitude of 1756 m. On the right just after the bridge the path n. 466 continues now no longer in the forest but along the pastures. We pass the Malga Mondeval de Sota abandoned for many years, we overcome the Rio Mondeval for a walkway and from there to a steep and difficult climb we reach the 'Plateau de Mondeval Sora 2158 m. and the rock where he was found the Mondeval Man. Here the only ones our travel companion are silence and nature, the view is magnificent, the mountains that surround us are the Lastoi of Formin, Croda da Lago, the Bec de Mezodi and Cernera chain. Spend a few moments in such a magical place will repay the effort made to achieve it. Return along the same path as did the first leg.
