Dolomites – Fanes
TOTAL TRAVEL TIME
From June to October (be aware of early or late snowfalls).
Usual equipment for Via Ferrata. In case of snow, provide suitable equipment.
From the SS 51 towards the north, after Fiames hotel, take the paved road on the left that skirts the Boite and indicates “Valle di fanes”. From the parking lot, you pass the bar and continue on foot for the marker 10-401 that for the first section is made up of a former military road paved.
The short equipped stretches do not present any particular difficulty and overall the excursion can be tackled in half a day.
From Pian de Loa you go into the forest along the path that, following the left of the river Rio Fanes, arrives after about 1 hour on the edge of the deep gorge engraved by the creek. From here, you descend for the little path that leads to the stony ground. Keeping on the left bank you walk up the stream and then you pass rocky jumps with ladders. It is thus reached a narrow between the rocks that leads to the passage under the first waterfall, peeling on the opposite side at a point of staging.
1 ° from the staging point: Following the dirt road you pass Ponte Outo (bridge 80m above the gorge of the stream) and on the dirt road you return to the parking lot.
2 ° You can make the complete tour of the waterfalls taking the path equipped with fixed ropes that crosses 250m downstream of the staging point and that leads back to the river bed and then climb up from where it came down.
Detailed and easy round ring well equipped. Appreciated for the trip that gives away through the tumultuous waters and waterfalls of the Rio fanes. Unique and unmissable passage under the waterfall and the thrilling crossing of the Outo Bridge.
