Winter hike to the Laab and Neuhütt Mountain Huts

From Nova Ponente we walk through the wintry forest landscape on the Monte Regolo, first to the Malga Laab mountain hut and further on to the Malga Capanna Nova mountain hut

This long but less demanding hike leads across the gentle hilly mountain landscape on the Monte Regolo highland. Our starting point is the roundabout at the village entrance of Nova Ponente village. Here we follow the footpath along the Via Daum road, past the local industrial area we soon have a beautiful view on the Catinaccio Group and Mt. Latemar. Passing the village lift we follow the asphalted road and the marker "Laab Alm" (no. 1).

Passing farms we reach the forest and after a few bends we reach our first destination, the Laab Mountain Hut (Laab Alm) at 1,649 m a.s.l. It is lunchtime and we take the opportunity to dine in the mountain tavern. After our break we continue our hike on path no. 1. The path to the Laab Mountain Hut was asphalted and free of snow, the second part of our hike leads through the snow now. The forest path leading to the Capanna Nuova Mountain Hut (Neuhütt, 1,790 m a.s.l.) is well prepared and easy to walk with only a gentle ascent until the finish.

The quiet nature and the views on the Dolomites at some clearings can be enjoyed particularly well on this sunny day. The Capanna Nuova Mountain Hut, still closed now at the beginning of December, is the final destination of our tour. Here our path meets cross-country skiing tracks and hiking trails coming from the Lavazé Pass, from Aldino and from the direction of the Madonna di Pietralba Pilgrimage Site. After a short rest we return to Nova Ponente on the same route.
