Trekking to Ciadin del Laudo and Sorapiss Lake

Information about the Ciadin del Laudo and Sorapiss Lake excursion

A beautiful excursion treating trekkers to incredible views unfolding in a wild and adventurous landscape, along trails, sections on equipped trail, ledges and screes. This is a challenging and uncommon trail, recommended to well-trained individuals who are ready to negotiate exposed sections of a equipped trail. The starting point is at Rifugio Faloria, reached by cable car leaving from Cortina.

The itinerary follows trail #213 up to Forcella Faloria, a favorite observation point over the Dolomites around Cortina. Then it continues on trail #216, reaching Sorapiss Lake after a steep descent. After a well-deserved rest at Rifugio Vandelli we climb up the hard trail leading to the Forcella di Punta Nera, overtaking a few sections bolted with fixed rope and iron steps. From the pass we return to the top station of the cable car and then down to Cortina.
