An unjustly very little-used path, perhaps because of the considerable distance from the starting point, but one that repays the effort with its majestic solitude, with a constant view of Sappada and other marvellous panoramas towards the Clap and other mountains of the northern slope. Apart from local hunters, it is usually not in itself a goal and is rarely used as a crossing point. It is however an obligatory passing point for access to the normal route for the Terza Grande (see Normal Routes Section) or when doing the Cresta di Enghe ring.

Turn-by-turn directions

From Sappada, and the district of Palù as per route # 1 (in the Walking section) as far as the bridge to the right on the Rio Storto (signs indicating " passo Elbel - passo Oberenghe"), beyond which you continue up a slight slope along a wide forest road parallel to the river until it becomes a path that, slightly uphill, meanders between the gravel and boulders of the river Enghe. Thus you reach the crossroads (at 1434 m) for the Elbel pass, which one leaves to one’s left (signed), going up the steep, narrow hairpins of the southern flank of monte Fiorito. As you proceed along the lonely valley of Enghe, the route becomes broader and you (unexpectedly) meet the cool, invigorating waters of a little stream and cross a series of beautiful grassy hollows, dominated by the impending southeastern cliffs of the Terza Grande. The gentle climb touches on the narrow mountain pass overlooking the Val Frison and the Razzo plateau.

Return

Along the same route.

For those with a good state of physical fitness it is advisable to continue with the route n. 4 as far as the Elbel pass and from here to Sappada with the n. 3 in reverse doing the Cresta di Enghe (total time for the ring hours 6:30-7:00 ).
