Hike to Mt Slimber and to the Sette Selle hut

The discovery journey leads us to the upper Valle dei Mocheni on the slopes of the Lagorai Group.

The Valle die Mocheni is a tributary valley of the Valsugana valley, branching off from Pergine towards north, at the riverside of the Rio Fersina river. At the head of the valley, there is Palù del Fersina, called “Palai im Bernstol” by the inhabitants of the valley, who still speak the Middle High German dialect, or “Mocheno”. We park our car at the “Vrotten” parking space (subject to fees), from where the walking trails start. We follow the signpost to the Maso Scalzer, afterwards the sign n° 370 shows us the way to Auzertol and Passo di Palù. The path stretches the way up, until we reach the tree line.

Crossing a sea of alpine roses in full blossom, we tackle the last piece of way up to the 2,070 m high Passo di Palù. This is where we keep right to the Passo die Garofani. A last ascent and we finally reach the Monte Slimber. This 2,200 m high grassy knoll provides a great view from the Brenta Dolomites to Lake Garda (Monte Baldo) and from the nearby Passo Ru and Cima di Ezze to the Dolomite peaks of the Latemar and the Marmolada.

Now we first walk back to the Passo dei Garofani, from where we take the path down to the Rif. Sette Selle. Half an hour later we make a short break, as we really deserve it. The rest of the way back leads through the forest to Intertol, and this is also how we reach the parking space.
