Ropeway walk to Sasso Piatto

This historic trail was opened by mountaineer Oskar Schuster in the 19th century: intrepid hikers step forward! Its valley and stunning views await only you!

Itinerary: Take the gondola lift from the Passo Sella Hut (2183 metres) to Forcella del Sassolungo (2679 metres). Quickly descend on path 525 to Vallone del Sassolungo and Vicenza Hut (2252 metres). From the hut walk uphill towards the Vallone del Sasso Piatto, right to the beginning of the via ferrata. Attention! Route is mostly steep and covered in snow! Follow the trail across the northern part of the Sasso Piatto, climbing over detritus and ledges to the summit of the Sasso Piatto (2964 metres).

Descent: Walk on the inclined platform on the south-western side to Sasso Piatto Hut at Giogo di Fassa (2297 metres). Follow the easy Federico Augusto path to the Passo Sella Hut.
