Route description

From the Auronzohütte/Rifugio Auronzo 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 Paternsattel/Forcella Lavaredo (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/Monte Paterno mountain to the next fork:
a) an easy climb up to the Dreizinnenhütte/Rif. Locatelli hut (2,405 m)
b) at the left, the trail no. 105 continues to the Lange Alpe hut an further on to the Lange Alpe lake. The walk continues at the western side of the Three Peaks to the starting point.
