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.
45 min. walk you reach the Cascate Hut; stop for a while before climbing
to the Refuge Passo S. Nicolò (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).
