This suggestion, one could say, represents a natural continuation of itinerary n.2 and allows the trained hiker in search of something special, to savour the peace and quiet of one of the most secluded and pristine parts of the entire Sappada area and their steps will, for a moment, break the harsh loneliness of an environment dominated by the unusual structure of the Cresta di Enghe and Enghe and the lonely silhouette of the Creta di Mimoias. Combining it with itineraries n.2 and n.3 (the latter done in reverse) the walker follows the Cresta di Enghe ring.
A route in full sun, interesting for the great variety in the spaces it crosses (mugo pine-filled mountain-sides, wild valleys, verdant passes, and broad grasslands). Much of it winds downhill or on-the-level at high altitude, and is therefore not strenuous except in the final stretch before the Elbel pass and represents the second segment of the long Enghe ring.
Best time of year
From the Oberenghe pass, reached using itinerary n.2, the walker descends for about 100 metres along the steep serpentine path n. 314. At the junction for the val Frison that lies below, turn left (eastwards) along the n. 202 that initially leads rapidly downhill, then following the contours as far as the pleasant grassy Mimoias saddle (1976m) lying between the Creta Mimoias to the south and the Cresta di Enghe to the north. From the pass, an impressive, wide valley continues on between meadows and isolated rocks almost right up to the campanile (rocky pinnacle) of Mimoias. Here we continue along the path (signed) that rises to the left towards the north (the track to the right leading east to the De Gasperi refuge) that with regular but steep hairpins, reaches the Elbel pass.
From the pass the return route to Sappada takes place along itinerary n.3 in reverse taking 1:45-2:15 hours.
