Hike from the Malga Mondent Alta to the Vese peak

Panoramic hike in the south-western part of the Maddalene Group, in the area between the Rabbi Valley and the Bresimo Valley.

Starting point of our hike is the Malga Mondent Alta, the Upper Mondent Mountain Hut, which is located at 1,911 m a.s.l. From the small village of Pracorno di Rabbi it is a 25-minute drive to this idyllic natural terrace at the foot of the Cima Mandrie (Mandrie Peak). It is a beautiful day in June, and the mountain hut is our only refreshment point along the way. We first walk towards the Malga Cortinga di Sopra, from where the ascent to the 2,331 m high Pass de l'Om starts. After an hour we reach the top of the hill, a beautiful ridge between the Val di Rabbi and Val di Bresimo valleys. Up here we feel close to the sky and enjoy the view. Along the ridge the path now leads us towards the Cima Lac peak (2,434 m a.s.l.), which could also be reached more quickly by taking a shortcut, and towards the Cima Vese peak.

An easy slope brings us up to the 2,400 m high Vese peak, a panoramic terrace with a splendid view on the Brenta and Presanella Groups, the Ortles Alps, the Maddalena Ridge and as far as the Val di Sole and Val di Rabbi valleys and the Alta Anaunia. After a pleasant picnic we break away from this beautiful place and start our descent.

To get back to the Malga Cortinga di Sopra and Malga Mondent Alta, we go back the same way until we are right between the Cima Vese and Cima Lac peaks. There we follow the signpost "Restor Mondent" on the left and cross the slope where no path is visible. When we reach the gravel path below, we follow it until we reach the Malga Cortinga di Sopra. From here it is not far to our starting point, the Malga Mondent Alta.
