Hike through the Ambiez valley

The Val d’Ambiez valley starts at San Lorenzo in Banale and digs deep until the peaks of the Brenta Dolomites - today we want to hike to the Rifugio Al Cacciatore mountain hut.

An altitude difference of about 1000 metres are between our starting point “Ristoro Dolomiti di Brenta” at the entrance of the Val d’Ambiez valley and our destination. At the parking space we start on the gravel road and walk for about 500 metres. Here on the right the path no. 325 branches off and leads us to a meadow. A little higher, a narrow gorge follows, which the stream has dug through the rock.

On the left the path no. 325 turns off to the Malga Senaso di Sotto and leads us through the forest to a plateau covered with alpine meadows directly below the cliffs. Quite smoothly we take the last part of our tour today and finally reach the Refugio Al-Cacciatore. It’s a pity that the peaks of the Brenta group are veiled in clouds today. Nevertheless we enjoyed our day in nature very much.
