Pasubio Dolomites Italy – Ridges traverse from Mount Cornetto to Baffeland

Pasubio Dolomites Italy – Ridges traverse from Mount Cornetto to Baffeland

Pasubio mountain Group presents the same Dolomite rock as the Brenta Group which explains its second name “The little Dolomites” They are situated between Trentino and Veneto. On a clear day you can normally see the white beaches of Venice from some of the tops of the Pasubio mountain group. In this area used to run the border between Austria and Italy and this is also where the soldiers fought between 1916 to 1918. We can visit many remainders of forts, trenches and tunnels of WW1. The environment offers meadow and forests with easy paths suitable for hiking. The most difficult trekking follows the traces and trenches of WW1 on the ridges and ledges up to the Dolomites rock walls. The Pasubio Group is ca. 1 hr. by car from Lake Garda and is accessible from May to October.

dates of hiking trip: see our calendar – upon request No. of participants: 3 Price: EUR 110,00

Meeting point: Rovereto train station – at 8.00 a.m. or in your Hotel at Lake Garda

Description: Tour in particularly scenic landscape against a great historical background. Departing from Rovereto with our mini-van we are heading towards Vicenza. We will reach the starting point of our tour, “Passo Pian delle Fugazze”, after about 45 min. Our first mountain top is Monte Cornetto (1.900 m). Itinerary of trekking trip: following the paths which have been constructed by the soldiers during World War I, sometimes on ridges, partially rather “airy” passages equipped with iron ropes. The climb up to Baffelan Peak is optional (some easy rock climbing is involved to reach the top). On our descent we will pass the alpine lodge “Passo di Campogrosso” where we can have a snack. The hike back to our mini-van is on a very comfortable path. This tour is very often being compared to the vie ferrate in the Brenta Dolomites but – from an alpinistic point of view – it is much more difficult. Excellent training for high-alpine tours with wonderful panorama; with good weather it even possible to see Venice and the Adriatic Sea. Back to Rovereto and/or your hotel at Lake Garda.

What to bring: backpack – water – sandwich – light windcheater – trekking boots – hiking sticks.

Equipment for via ferrata: harness, ferrata-set, helmet (can be rented from the mountain guide).
