Descrizione itinerario

We enjoy the beautiful view of the massif directly from Crystal Lake Misurina, which this season is completely frozen and you can walk on without problems, the lake is not very deep and in winter it becomes a fabulous skating rink.

We walk towards Lake Around, Malga Rinbianco, Three Peaks.

The road is clean and we follow the road to the junction a few meters towards the three peaks and keep to the right. Now we are moving to the right (next to the ski slopes in disuse), trail no. 101 which for a stretch overlaps the 115.

The climb is very tiring but the view is wonderful and the Three Peaks are there watching us.

After a while 'we find ourselves at a crossroads, where the ski slopes are to the right and we turn left towards Lago D'around.

From the track we go to a real path which obviously narrows and we have a long curve to return later on the asphalt road.

The snow there and have some snowshoes avoids sinking from time to time with the boots.

Once Around the Lake, along a short stretch of paved road, we are faced with a barrier from where you can take the snowmobile to get to the Three Peaks. The ticket price is 30 Euros per person A / R. We obviously we walk.

We walk down the road for a few meters and follow the signs for trail 101 to Rifugio Auronzo.

Sentiero 110 Rifugio Auronzo

At this point the path is immersed in the woods and after a climb with beautiful bends do a crosspiece to which advice the use of snowshoes because the snow accumulated (and well compact) is about 1.5 meters.

We ford a small stream, there are bridges and is not very difficult to pass.

We are facing a natural spectacle, a wonder of snow, mountains and the play of light and shadow.

Neve montagne natura

We continue to the refuge Auronzo starting to look in the distance and we rejoin the road (which is snow-covered) to make a short and well-deserved break at the refuge where we eat something.
