Summit tour from the Passo Redebus to the Monte Ruioch

Mountain tour through the forests high above the Valle dei Mocheni valley to the porphyry peaks in the western part of the Lagorai mountain chain

The parking space at the Passo Redebus pass, connecting the Valle dei Mocheni valley to the Piné Highland, is the starting point for our summit tour to the Mt. Ruioch. The path no. 443B leads us past the Malga Regnana mountain hut and further on to the junction with a forest road without signpost. At the end of this forest road an indiscernible forest trail towards Mt. Lemperpèrg starts. At the timber line we pass three crosses before reaching the 2,000 m high summit.

At this point the demanding section of the tour lies in front of us: the descent to the Passo Polpen and the following ascent to the western Lagorai peaks Oltnmonn, Schvorzlommer and Mount Ruioch. Sturdy shoes and sure-footedness are required, the paths on the rocky porphyry terrain are eroded and slippery because of the rain in the last few weeks.

The beautiful view from the 2,400 m high peaks includes the mountains of South Tyrol and the Trentino. We follow the same trail back to the Passo Polpen from where we choose the path towards the Malga Stramaiolo mountain hut to reach the Passo Redebus again.
