Walking in the Dolomites: the Peitlerkofel circular walk


The route description of the Peitlerkofel / Sass de Putia circular walk. An easy hike around one of the most spectacular mountains in the Dolomites.

The Peitlerkofel circular walk it is a beautiful hike in the Puez-Odle Natural Park, Dolomites, that leads without major difficulties in circa five hours around the entire base of this 2875 high mountain which, in Italian, is called Sas de Putia.

The park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and because of the walk’s beauty and the moderate height gain it is extremely popular, in particular the first section that leads from the Würzjoch pass to the col Forcella Putia where another path leads to an easy equipped path and the summit of Peitlerkofel, not described here.

The walk can be carried out in both directions. It is usually done counterclockwise, i.e. initially walking west, as this tackles the relatively steep ascent to Forcella Putia with fresh legs. Here though it is described in a clockwise direction, as this ensures you’ll be alone for as long as possible and you’ll be able to watch the early morning light unfold onto the different sides of the mountain.
