A long time ago in Val de Misdé, which clambers up the huge Sella from Colfosco as far as Boé, there lived a nymph. She was young, beautiful and loving. She would spend the summer in the valley, amidst the rocks, and only those who climbed up to the Pisciadú or the Boé could catch sight of her.

Turn-by-turn directions

The start is in Colfosco (1645 m) at the Tourist office - Str. Pecëi. From here, walking along the pavement, you reach the hotel Luianta where path number 651 leads you to the entrance of the Val Mezdí. Here you walk uphill until the Dënt de Mezdí where path number 651 crosses path number 676 for the Pisciadú mountain hut. You continue southwardly and climb uphill the arduous wall equipped with metallic ropes – pay attention, it is frequently covered with snow and ice. Arrived at the plateau at the bottom of the Col Toronn you proceed on the comfortable path in direction of the Boé – Bambergerhütte mountain hut.
You can return to Colfosco following the same itinerary.

If you want to pass through the Val Mezdí only downwards, you can take a public bus from Colfosco to the Passo Pordoi where the cable car Passo Pordoi brings you up to the Pordoi mountain hut. From here the easy and well marked path number 647 leads you till the Boé – Bambergerhütte mountain hut from where you start descending the Val Mezdí.
