Silence, isolation, and wild places characterise this 100-kilometre-long Alta Via you can walk from Villabassa-Niederdorf in Pusteria (BZ), to Longarone (BL) divided into 8 stages.
Also known as the Alta Via “dei Camosci” (of the Chamois), it is a path suitable for experienced hikers that will take you through less travelled, still wild, and unspoiled areas.
The Alta Via begins with the Fanes-Sennes-Braies Nature Park and passes through the Dolomiti di Sesto Nature Reserve. On the way, it crosses iconic World War I sites, such as Forte Prato Piazza and Monte Piana. It continues in the shadow of the Three Peaks of Lavaredo and arrives at Sorapiss where you admire the famous turquoise waters of the lake of the same name.
Exposed at times, the crossing is truly striking and descends from San Vito di Cadore, while the alternative route on the Berti iron road is even more challenging.
Val Boite introduces us to the group of Monte Pelmo and Monte Rite. It is from this point that the Alta Via enters the Bosconero group: the most unspoiled one of the mountain, which here retains the charm of an unexplored place with chamois reigning undisturbed.
Impressive and particularly challenging is the climb to Forcella della Toanella, beside Bosconero rock, and the “Viaz” de le Ponte, which leads to Val Tovanella Oriented Nature Reserve.
