Alpine Guide’s advice

“The surroundings of the Fanes waterfalls offers unforgettable moments in all seasons. In Spring, when the thaw fills with water the course of the Rio Fanes, the roar of the waterfall can be heared already at great distance. The itinerary can be travelled even with uncertain weather… you will get wet anyway passing under the waterfall.”   Giacomo Zardini
