Croda da Lago loop
CRODA FROM LAKE
25 € per person
If Toquinho had been Ampezzano he would certainly have been inspired by these places, the tour of the Croda da Lago can be counted among the most satisfying from a landscape and naturalistic point of view.
The concentration and variety of environments crossed make this area the best spot in the Dolomites.
Glacial valleys, screes, dolomitic peaks, erratic boulders, immense alpine meadows and lakes will accompany us along the entire route.
Each side a different scenography, we will walk with the impression of making an excursion within an excursion.
The starting and finishing point is the town of Ponte de Rocurto, halfway between Cortina and Passo Giau.
After an initial stretch on a gentle slope immersed in the splendid spruce forest, we will turn right to go up the glacial Val de Formin watched over from above by the Croda da Lago and Cima Ambrizzola.
Forc. de Formin with its 2462m is the highest point of the tour and gateway to the extensive Mondeval prairies.
The turning point will be Forc. Ambrizzola, in the distance the Rif Palmieri and the Federa lake herald a well-deserved and relaxing break, before embarking on the last stretch in the woods that will take us back to the starting point.

The floor plan of the house in which I grew up reflects an old custom whereby the kitchen faces south and the rooms face north.
This good design rule reserved for me a small room overlooking hills and foothills, woods and meadows, inevitable not to feel attraction to that world that was just begging to be explored and that I had begun to know from that window.
As I grew up, my gaze went beyond those hills, further north, to the Dolomites and into all those mountains that give me excitement.
There they are, after all, outside my bedroom window.
"If the point at which you plunge into a river is the present, I thought, then the past is the water that has passed you by, the water that goes downward and where there is nothing left for you, while the future is the water that comes down from above, bringing dangers and surprises. The past is downstream, the future is upstream.
Whatever fate is, it dwells in the mountains above our heads."
