Hike from the Feudo pass to Mt Latemar and Pampeago

The mountain hike below the Latemar mountain group takes us towards Obereggen and back via the Pampeago mountain pass.

The Latemar sure is one of the most interesting mountains in the Val di Fiemme, due to its fragile towers which are unique throughout the whole Dolomites. In order to watch this special mountain at close quarters we take the funicular from Predazzo to Garnoè where we board the chair lift up to the Feudo-pass. The path proceeds upwards along the marker no. 516 towards the Rifugio Torre die Pisa (mountain hut). The meadows become more and more rocky, at the next crossing we turn off to the path no. 22, the major ascent is managed. Along the path we walk now in high alpine terrain, above the timber line, between rocky deserts and the typical dry meadows of the Dolomites where wonderful alpine flowers bloom.

Now we are in the community of Nova Ponente (Deutschnofen) in South Tyrol, above the famous skiing village Obereggen. We proceed downwards towards the top station of the Oberholz chair lift until we reach the path no. 23. Along this we walk towards the Malga La Mens (Mayrl Alm mountain hut), first through the forest, then across Alpine meadows and the last part along the asphalted road to the Pampeago-pass (Reiterjoch). Here also the Malga Ganischger and Malga Zischg are located which both provide food and drinks. In order to finish our circular walk we follow the path no. 521 up to the Feudo-pass. To our surprise this last section of the path is part of the Geologic Path “Dos Capel”, where witnesses from the time of creation of the Dolomites can be found.
