Head back to the Gardenacia chair lift. Retrace yesterday’s steps for a kilometre or so before breaking off onto trail no. 11, which cuts a straight line through the heart of the Puez-Geisler Nature Park. With no sign of any cable cars or mountain huts, this quiet trail feels like a million miles away from civilization. Follow the rocky, ascending path for a couple of kilometres and come to the  Col Plö Alt, a plateau at 2,649m with panoramic mountain views. Descend steeply to grassy meadows frequented by grazing horses and marmots. Return to La Villa by the chair lift. Enjoy another hearty dinner full of traditional South Tyrolean specialities at your hotel restaurant.

Today you may be walking past a few different areas where cows graze. Although generally very docile and used to walkers, keep your distance and never turn your back on a cow that is behaving strangely or aggressive. Be particularly vigilant around cows with calves.

Watch the short term local weather forecasts. Avoid high altitude hiking when the weather is bad. There are plenty of trails in the valleys, that allow you to reach a village quickly if bad weather sets in.

Gardenacia chair lift


From La Villa, the Gardenaccia chairlift takes you up to 1,780 m, where you will start today's walk along trail no. 5, leading you through a coniferous forest following the sign to the Rif. Gardenacia mountain hut.  Reach the meadow on which the mountain hut is located. This is where you can enjoy a perfect view of the snow-covered glacier of the Marmolada and the peaks of Mt. Sassongher and Mt. Para dai Giai.

From here follow signpost no. 11. Continuously ascending through the high-alpine meadow. On your right spot rough rock formations, as you follow the trail to the Col Plö Alt. We’ve walked about one hour now, and we can already see the cross on the summit. Enjoy a great view of the Fanes Group with the peaks of the Sasso di Santa Croce, Lavarella, Conturines, Fanes, Croda del Becco, Lagazuoi and Settsass, towards the north, you can see the main Alpine divide, and north-west, spot Mt. Sass de Putia. Continue to follow the trail until you reach the Col Plö Alt ridge and admire the spectacular views.

Follow the same trail on your way back down from Col Plö Alt until you reach a crossroads, bear left as you loop back to the Gardenaccia chairlift via, trail no. 1A a different trail than before.
