Information about the snowshoeing to Rocchetta di Prendera

The excursion on snowshoes starts in Campo, a borough of Cortina, where we leave our car. The first section, on a trail in the woods - negotiated optionally by snowmobile - leads to Malga Federa at an elevation of 1816 meters. From the malga we proceed on snowshoes in a spectacular environment, along woods and wide and large pastures gently climbing and getting beneath the long Rocchette bastion. We continue along a nice ridge reaching the cross on the summit of the Rocchetta di Pendera. From the summit we can admire a spectacular view over the Dolomites and the Ampezzo basin. We negotiate the descent following the upward tracks or picking different lines along the wide slopes leading back to Malga Federa.

The excursion on snowshoes to the Rocchetta di Prendera at Croda da Lago has an elevation gain of 680 meters from Malga Federa (1300 from the parking lot) and an F (easy) rating.
