Palaronda Hard Trek

6 days / 5 nights Trekking

This demanding trekking is dedicated to experienced and trained hikers who want to deal with via ferratas, cable-aided paths and medium-level exposed routes. This route permits to walk across the entire range of the Pale di San Martino from North to South, with overnight accommodation on the five Huts of the Pale.

From the Pradidali Hut is possible to reach Velo della Madonna Hut with 2 different routes: the first one through the Porton and Velo via ferratas, these tracks are very exposed but well equipped, they get across steep cliffs and deep valleys (about 3.30/4 hours). The second route permits to get to the Velo della Madonna Hut through the Nico Gusela cable-aided path (with the possibility to reach the top of  Cima Val di Roda), and then climbing on the medium-level Velo via ferrata (about 5 hours).

From the Velo Hut, we reach the Canali “Treviso” Refuge through the beautiful hiking path named “del Cacciatore”, which runs from the bottom of the amazing  face of the Sass Maor massif, through steep grassy slopes to the Val Pradidali. From here we walk on the footpath across the wood to get to the Hut (about 5 hours).


Canali “Treviso” Hut – Rosetta Hut (SAT)

Walking on the footpath 707 from the Canali “Treviso” Hut, we reach Passo Canali and thus the eastern edge of the Plateau. We follow the footpath 707 to get near the Fradusta glacier; from here, we can go up to the Cima Fradusta (2939 m) in about 1.30 hours, and then reach the Rosetta Hut (SAT) in about 6 hours. In the evening, don’t miss the spectacular sunset and the amazing view from the Cima Rosetta (just a 20 minute walk far from the Rosetta Hut).


Rosetta Hut (SAT) – Mulaz Hut (CAI Venezia)

Height difference: uphill 750 m / downhill 760 m

Average time of the trail: 4 / 5 hours

Dinner and overnight stay: Mulaz  Hut (CAI Venezia)

From Rosetta Refuge, we follow the footpath 703 (also known as “delle Farangole” footpath) to the “pian dei Cantoni” (2300 m); this path goes across the Cimon della Pala massif (3184 m) and the Vezzana peak (3192 m). We go forward, through the Val delle Galline, walking above the  Val delle Comelle. We will then find on the left the track which leads to the Brunner bivouac (2750 m) through the Val Strutt. From the bivouac we leave the track and then proceed toward Cima di Valgrande (3038 m), we walk surrounding the bottom of the peak of Torcia di Valgrande; from here, we come up through an aided-canal which leads to the Passo delle Farangole (2814 m). On the right, the peak of the campanile del Focobon (2969 m) dominates over the Pass, while on the left the Viennese Tower (2900 m) shows its unique silhouette. From the Passo delle Farangole we descend down a path on the right, toward the saddle of Forcella Margherita (2655 m); from here we will easily get to the Mulaz Hut (2571 m).


Mulaz Hut (CAI Venezia) – San Martino di Castrozza

Height difference: uphill 200 m / downhill 1120 m

Average time of the trail: 4 / 5 hours

Dinner and overnight stay: not included, return to San Martino di Castrozza

From the Mulaz Refuge we get to Passo del Mulaz (2610 m). Before getting to the Pass, with an easy ascent of about 45 minutes it’s possible to reach the top of the Mulaz peak (2906 m), to enjoy the stunning panorama. We then go down toward Val Venegia through the footpath 710 “Quinto Scalet”; from the path we can admire the amazing natural architectures of the peak of the Campanile di Valgrande (2995 m), the Cima di Valgrande (3038 m) and cima dei Bureloni (3130 m). We then will arrive to the Campigol della Vezzana, just beneath the homonymous peak, and thus at the Travignolo springs. From here, we move up to the chalet of Baita Segantini (2170 m), and a shuttle bus will bring us down to Passo Rolle. We will come back to San Martino di Castrozza by bus, using public transports. Another route starts from Baita Segantini: it is possible to walk toward the pasture of Malga Fosse following the footpath 712 “dei Finanzieri”, then go on to the chalet Rifugio Col Verde (2000 m). From the chalet Col Verde you can choose to take the funicular or to walk down the footpath 701 toward San Martino di Castrozza. We highly suggest to check in advance the timetable of the shuttle bus, of the public transports and of the Colverde funicular.
