Hike to the Solander Mountain Hut and Lake Malghette

This circular walk leads us through the woods at the Passo Campo Carlo Magno pass to the Folgarida di Dimaro and Malghet Aut mountain huts on the Monte Vigo and to the Lago delle Malghette lake.

We start at the Campo di Carlo Magno, north of the pass at about 1,650 m asl. on a forest path into the forest and towards the Malga Darè hut. From there the path proceeds to the Folgarida di Dimaro mountain hut where the path no. 265 crosses our way. It is the path which connects Folgarida directly with the Lago delle Malghette lake. But we follow the path towards the Malghet Aut mountain hut and the Rosalpina and Albasini huts. At the Malghet Aut hut we continue our ascent towards the Monte Vigo.

Arrived at the Rif. Solander mountain hut (2,050 m asl.) we decide to take a comfortable break. Here, high above the Val Mastellina valley, we enjoy the panoramic view on the Presanella Group, Brenta Dolomites and the Ortles-Cevedale Group. On a wide forest path we walk further uphill always towards the Monte Vigo, with 2,170 m asl. the highest point of our hike today.

Below us, towards southwest, the Lago delle Malghette lake is already within sight. Now the descent on a steep bridle path starts until the little magic lake amidst meadows and woods. In the clear water the Brenta Dolomites are reflected. Afterwards the path leads us through a forest further downhill. The last 3 km back to our starting point, the Campo di Carlo Magno, we walk along the forest path of the Vigo Mountain Hut.
