Giro di Pòusa Marza

By: Mario Dibona, Mountain Guide
Area: Dolomites, Group: Cristallo - Faloria, Country: Italy

This is a beautiful itinerary through the unspoilt “Natural Park of the Ampezzo Dolomites”. With a bit of luck you will come across deer. So as not to frighten the animals keep as quiet and still as possible. The deer will then walk away slowly, enabling them to save their life saving energy, needed to withstand the harsh winter in the mountains.

GETTING THERE

From Cortina take the SS 48 to Passo Tre Croci.

ACCESS

From Passo Tre Croci drive towards Misurina to Ponte de Rudavoi (leave a first car here) and continue to the Cantoniera building at Ruvietta (near the river Pòusa Marza). Park here.

ROUTE

Cross the river Ruvieta about 70m after the Cantoniera building (with map of the “Natural Park of the Ampezzo Dolomites”) and turn off left onto the small road. This starts off relatively flat but gradually steepens – thankfully the most tiring section of the outing! Keep left at the first fork and at a second fork turn off right. It his here that deer may be seen. Reach the Pòusa Marza plateau at the end of the climb and a small hunter’s lodge, nestled in a truly magical setting. From this privileged viewpoint one can make out deer on the rocky Dolomite walls, the "Crepi de Valoriè” or “Tàghe". Cross the plateau and find the signs which lead to the rocky Corno D'Angolo walls. Coast beneath these SE through undulating terrain and then begin the descent along path no. 222 back down to Ponte di Rudavoi.

DESCENT

From Ponte di Rudavoi return to Ruvietta by car.

GEAR

Normal equipment for winter walking, snowshoes and poles. Binoculars recommended.

DIFFICULTY

No obvious danger.

bellissimo e per tutti, meglio farlo con più neve e più freddo, consiglio scarponcini con buona tenuta acqua o con trattamento
