An ideal area for walks and hikes with the beauty of nature all around you.

A few tips
1. An easy walk, which leads from the top cable car station to the small glacial lake "Lake Boè". The route follows the clear path no. 638 that sets out from in front of the top cable car station. At a leisurely pace, the ascent takes about 20 minutes. Difficulty level: easy for everyone. Less than 100 meters of altitude gain.

2. Ascent to the Franz Kostner mountain hut in Vallon. Vallon is a stunning glacial valley surrounded by beautiful walls of Dolomia Cassiana, often climbed by mountaineers. In addition to the mountaineering routes, there are also two via ferratas here; the first is named after the Vallon area and is an alternative to the ascent of the Cresta Sternta on Piz Boè, the second most frequented and most famous is the via ferrata on Piz Da Lech, which ascends to the homonymous peak.
Follow the same path as the previous route leading to Lake Boè, no. 638, and then cross the ski slope and follow the clear trail that goes up the ridge to the mountain hut; for the descent, you can follow the same path or take the Vallon chairlift. There are also other descents leading downhill from the Vallon mountain hut; it is a good idea to find out about the various options before choosing these. The ascent takes about 1 hour and 40 minutes. Difficulty level: easy; pushchairs cannot be taken up the ascent from Lake Boè. Approximately 400 meters of altitude gain.
