A hike in the Dolomiti Bellunesi National Park that will take you along the path of the wayfarers who used to cross Val Cordevole long ago. Departing from the Vedana Carthusian Monastery and arriving at Valle Imperina mines, 20 kilometres or about 6 hours of walking, you will find a wide variety of scenery.
The street is named after the 3 medieval hospices that provided safe shelter for travellers, pilgrims and workers in the past: Vedana, called Certosa since 1456, Candaten and Agre. Along the way, which remains at a low altitude, you will see the diverse views and environments that characterise this valley crossed by the Cordevole stream.
The huge meadows of Salet where it is not uncommon to see chamois and grazing horses. The wild Val Pegolera, whose name stems from the production of pitch (pegola) that was made from the resin of the Scotch pines that are plentiful here. The impressive, but still on safe ground, Vaion Gorge and the characteristic little waterfalls of Valle del Mus. After passing the last hospice called Agre, the route ends at the mines of Valle Imperina. There will also be no shortage of curiosities and legends along this evocative path.
Squint to spot the Pegolera Gendarme, a rock spire on the creek that looks like a soldier. Learn about Taiada de San Martin where the saint is said to have saved a boy, who had ended up at the bottom of a lake, by cutting through the rock and letting the water drain out.
