Take the road that leaves from Pozza di Fassa and leads to Valle dei Monzoni. When you get to the junction by a little church continue left following the signs to Valle S. Nicolò and drive to Ciampiè Hut, just before you find a car park. Here our hike starts.
In this wide and sunny valley there are nice huts, while in the background you see the rocky Costabella crest, Cima Uomo and the triangular Col Ombert.
After a 45 min. walk you reach the Cascate Hut; stop for a while before climbing to the Passo S. Nicolò Hut (2300 metres). It takes about 1 hour. What an enchanting view on the Marmolada group! Further on you can see the Sella group (in the north) and the Catinaccio (in the west).
Best period: end of May - September
