Hike via the Malga Monzoni to the Lago delle Selle

The hike through the Val San Nicolò proceeds to the idyllically located Malga Monzoni mountain hut and the Lago delle Selle lake in the south of the Marmolada Group.

Our hike starts at the entrance of the Val San Nicolò valley near Pozza di Fassa, more precisely at the parking space of the La Soldanella restaurant. On the other side of the creek we follow the forest road into the valley to the Malga Crocifisso tavern. At the chapel behind the building we branch off into the Val Monzoni valley (Val Munciogn, in Ladin) and follow the trail no. 603 towards the Malga di Munciogn.

Right past this beautiful mountain hut at 1,850 m asl (rest point) we continue our hike on the path no. 603 towards the Rif. Taramelli. This mountain hut is managed by a student section of the Trentino Alpine Club (S.A.T. Trento). The narrow trail no. 604 proceeds to the Passo delle Selle (2,528 m a.s.l.) and further on to the eponymous mountain hut and downhill to the Passo San Pellegrino.

We won’t hike that far - instead we choose the ascent to the Lago delle Selle lake (path no. 604), a small mountain lake surrounded by the peaks of Mt. Costabella, the south-western foothills of the Marmolada Group: Pala di Crapela, Punta Selle, Alochet, Spiz de Tariciogn and Cima Malinvern. We turn back into the valley along the same trail.
