Alta Via 6 of the Dolomites

Alta Via 6 Of The Dolomites

The Alta Via 6 “Alta Via dei silenzi” (of silences), a part of Alta Via Europa 6 that leads from Großglockner to Peralba, begins at the springs of the Piave River in Sappada (UD) and ends in Vittorio Veneto (TV) 180 kilometres and 11 stages away, passing through the 8 minor dolomite groups and less travelled areas.

If you are looking for a solitary path, to discover the wilder side of the Dolomites, this route is perfect. To cope with its long crossings, nearly 19,000 metres of elevation gain, the scarcity of water, and scarce places to stop and rest, you will need experience and good physical preparation.

From the Sorgenti del Piave mountain shelter, you pass through the Olbe lakes and through the mountain shelters called Fratelli De Gasperi and Ten Fabbro, you reach the meadows of Razzo plateau. Past Mauria Pass and Giaf mountain shelter, we arrive at the easy crossing that skirts Cridola, Spalti di Toro and Monfalconi. Stunning the view from Forcella Scodavacca.

From the Padova mountain shelter, you arrive at the more austere part of the Alta Via: the section leading to the Greselin bivouac presents stretches of 2nd and 3rd levels of difficulty, and can be avoided by descending through Val Cimoliana in the Dolomiti Friuliane Nature Park. 

From Cimolais you go up to the shelter of Col Nudo, made from a natural cave just below Valbona Pass. Staying overnight in this spartan facility is an experience you should not miss!

Finally, the crossing to the Semenza mountain shelter and the descent to Vittorio Veneto provide wonderful views of the Alpago basin and Lake Santa Croce.
