Turn-by-turn directions

Start in Corvara, from where you go up to the top station of the Boè gondola lift on trail no. 639. Continue on trail no. 638 to the picturesque Lech de Boè lake and across meadows to the Ütia Franz Kostner mountain hut. At this point, turn right to the trail nr. 672, which entres the wide gully on the scree slope's right side, close up to below the walls. Climb up over easy boulders, partially equipped, until reaching a vast screefilled dip. Exit from the mountainous gorge onto a narrow overhang. Heading south-west, along the trail, which begins on even ground but subsequently rises, you will arrive at the peak of "Cresta Strënta" after crossing a steep scree slope. Walk along the ridge and, in no time, you'll finally arrive to Piz Boé (3,152 m) (2h 20 min.), from where you can enjoy exciting and stunning views. Descend from Piz Boè to the Ütia Boè Hut, by following, in a north-west direction, trail nr. 638, which makes its way down a relatively steep gully before crossing ruble-strewn stretches, often covered by snow and ice. After leaving the Ütia Boé Hut (2,870 m), your walk continues northwards by way of trail nr. 666. The trail will take you through the entire Mëisules plateau, before you make your way down along a gully (snow and rock steps) to the Ütia Pisciadú Hut (2,580 m). While still on trail nr. 666 which descends along Val Setus, will you initially have to cross a steep ascent with the assistance of steel cables, then zig zag down over a scree slope before coming to a junction. By taking trail nr. 666 on the left, you will make a sideways approach to the Gardena Pass.
