Rifugio Tissi, Civetta mountain

A great trekking in Civetta montain in the heart of Dolomite, up to Tissi refuge – ITALY – 28-29/06/2021

Last June I spent a couple of days with my family in Civetta mountain. In the heart of Dolomite, one the best mountain group in the world, heritage site of UNESCO.

We drove from our house in Vicenza up to Piani di Pezze, close to the town of Alleghe.
We parked our car in piani di Pezzè (mt. 1452) and we started our great trekking following the path n. 564. We reached saddle of Alleghe than Casera di Pioda (mt. 1816) where we turn right in path 556, directed to refuge A. Sonino al Coldai (mt 2132).

After Coldai saddle, few minutes walking from the refuge (path 560), we reached Coldai lake. A wonderful little montain lake with deep blue water. Lake was partially covered by snow creating a fantastic atmosphere and in addition nice light effects.

We go over Col Negro di Coldai, another saddle long our trip, then we descend a little up to “Forcella di Col Rean” before our last climb to refuge A. Tissi (mt. 2250). In this part of the trekking we found some parts of the path covered by snow, we proceed with more caution but without particular problems.

Most of the trekking, from Alleghe saddle follow Alpine path of Dolomite n.1 a fantastic more days trekking who connect different refuges in one the most amazing mountains in the world.

We spent the night in the refuge where we met people from different part of Italy and from abroud.

Refuge is 50 mt from the top of “Col Rean” (mt. 2281) a rock who dominate Alleghe valley.
From the refuge you can observe the great noth western face of Civetta. A 1000 mt vertical cliff famous for a lot of rock routes called by climber the “Mother of cliff”.

The day later we continue to follow Alpine path of Dolomite n.1 / path 560 direction refuge Vazzoler (mt. 1714). Then we proceed up to Capanna Trieste. This day was not difficult, we walked all day downhill.

In Capanna Trieste I walked for some kilometers in paved road up to the little town of Listolade. Then one old guy give me a lift to Cencenighe where I took a bus to Alleghe.

In Alleghe I took a cable car for Piani di Pezze where I found my car. Then I drove to pick up my wife and my sons in Listolade where they were waiting for me.
