Information about Via Ferrata Strada degli Alpini

The path of this wonderful via ferrata is rather long. The progression is relatively easy until Forcella Undici and then it gets harder until Passo della Sentinella. Stretches of stony slopes alternate with very exposed ledges that are equipped with metal wires. The views that the hikers climb among are priceless and the path becomes even more evocative thanks to the many memories of the epic happenings of the “Great” War.

The Via Ferrata Strada degli Alpini is equipped with metal wires by the rocky ledges and by the exposed meadows and with a metal ladder and a sequence of steps that assist the vertical stretches.

The excursion starts from valley Val Fiscalina and it follows a beautiful and scenic approaching itinerary that develops within a characteristic dolomite environment. The return offers several interesting options that bring back to the starting point, one of them being the climb route.
