Route description

Three Peaks
(c) Drei Zinnen Marketing Three Peaks

The Three Peaks are the symbol of the Alta Pusteria: They belong to the most famous mountains of the Dolomites. The Dolomites were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009. This is a very special accolade that confirms not only the globally unique character and incomparable beauty of this mountainous landscape, but also its integrity.

From the Rif. Auronzo/Auronzohütte hut, on the south side of the Three Peaks, the mountain trail no. 101 passes at the Lavaredo hut (2,344 m) and climbs gradually up to the Forcella Lavaredo/Paternsattel (2,454 m). Here you will catch the first stunning glimpse of the 500-metre-high north faces of the Three Peaks (approx. 1 hour to here; recommended even for inexperienced hikers). Descending slightly the trail crosses beneath the Paternkofel mountain to the next fork:
a) an easy climb up to the Rif. Locatelli/Dreizinnenhütte hut (2,405 m)
b) at the left, the trail no. 105 continues to the Lange Alpe Alpine hut an further on to the Lange Alpe lake. The walk continues at the western side of the Three Peaks to the starting point.
