Turn-by-turn directions

From the church in Colfosco, set off west through the Val Edelweiss on trail nr. 4, going by the refuge and the tiny votive chapel until you reach a junction (or with the Col Pradat Lift from Colfosco to the hill of the same name). Here, take trail nr. 7 to Sassongher, going up over debris and rocky spurs  to the Forcella Sassongher. From the pass, climb to the right once again, crossing a steep scree slope and some rocks with metal ropes, to arrive at the summit. (3h 10min.). Come back down to the pass the same way. Leaving forcella Sassongher, descend northwards, to begin with on trail nr. 7, but then trail nr. 5. This particular trail goes along an overhang below the sides of Para da Giai, ultimately arriving at the Gardenacia hut. Down to La Villa from the refuge, following trail nr. 5, now going north-east. Cross several rocky overhangs then head downwards, over vast scree slopes until you are overlooking the Sponata hut at the chairlift station, which will take you to La Villa.
