During the technically easiest stage of the circular tour your efforts will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the South Tyrolean Dolomites!

The route has no via ferrata and is therefore recommended for hikers who do not want to use via ferratas. To the col of Monte Quaternà the route is easy and largely along forestry paths. The route then continues via war-time paths to Sella del Frugnoni, where you can see the walls of Caserma di Finanza. On the Carnic high route the trail then runs down to the hut Obstanserseehütte. Along the route there are many beautiful views of the Sesto Dolomites.

Author’s recommendation

Towards Alpe di Nemes there are beautiful marshy meadows to admire.
