03 Fuorcla Val Sassa - CLOSED

Hiking trail

This challenging 8-hour alpine excursion is only recommended for sure-footed walkers with a head for heights.

Aptly named ‘stone’ valley, the route passes through enormous screes. Even in summer, stretches of snow-covered terrain have to be negotiated in the upper regions.

Particularities
Ibex, Lai da Müschauns (not beside the path, can be seen from the pass – Fuorcla Val Sassa – where there is an amazing panorama), rock glacier Val Sassa. Overnight stay possible in Chamanna Cluozza.

Follow-up hikes
To Zernez on Route 07 or (after overnight stay in Chamanna Cluozza) continuation on Route 08.
