Mountain tour from Sesto to the Rif. Locatelli alle Tre Cime

The mighty Tre Cime di Lavaredo are the most famous pinnacles of the Dolomites. We walk to the Rifugio Locatelli mountain hut, providing a breathtaking view on these natural stone giants.

In the Val Fiscalina, strictly speaking at the Hotel Dolomitenhof (bus station, parking place subject to fee) our tour to the Rifugio Locatelli alle Tre Cime starts. We follow the course of the valley towards the Rifugio Fondovalle, where we take the path no. 102. Walking along the Val Sassovecchio valley, the path becomes steeper and stretches up to the Rifugio Locatelli. On our left, the Cima Una and the Croda Fiscalina, on the right the Torre di Toblin and the Sasso di Sesto. When we reach the tree line, we can admire a rocky landscape of scars vegetation, honeycombed with Alpine flowers.

The path leads continuously the way up, until we reach an altitude of about 2,300 m asl. We’ve almost walked 3 hours now and we reach a high plateau with two lakes, reflecting the blue sky. These lakes are called Laghi dei Piani and stretch at the foot of the striking Torre di Toblin. From here the roof of the Rifugio Locatelli is already visible, in the background there are the impressive pinnacles of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo. Once the mountain hut is reached, we can enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view and can enjoy the crystal clear mountain air. For the way down on the same route, we schedule about 2 hours of walking.
