The Dolomites 2012: Day 12

Rifugio Rosetta – Rifugio Treviso

We decided to take a alternative way. I was kind of shaky after the vertigo day before. We decided to take a alternative way to th top Passo della Leda. It was a little longer way but easier, no via ferrata climbing.

We walked through a rocky beautiful landscape. The landscape reminded us of the Icelandic highland.

After a while we came to the top Passo della Leda 2695 m.

After the top we walked down 1700 m to Canali valley at 1100 m. It was not difficult but really tiring especially in the end.

Rifugio Treiviso, we just needed to walk down and then up on the other side

There was a water stream down in the Canali valley, we sat down and took a foot bath before we started climbing up though the forest to Rifugio Treviso 1631m.

We just loved Rif Treviso. It was beautiful, we got our own room, the staff was really nice, the view was wonderful and the big room with its fireplace was so comfortable. We spent the evening with Helene and James a very nice couple from England we had been spending a view evenings with.
