PIZ BOÈ | An emotion at 3000 meters
On the Sella group, which dominates the Alta Badia on one side and Arabba on the other, there is a point that is easily accessible even to those who do not have a specific preparation for mountain climbing, and allows you to reach the altitude of 3152 meters above sea level.
This three thousand is perhaps the easiest to top throughout the Alps, especially thanks to the cableway that from Passo Pordoi reaches the Maria refuge, already at an altitude of 2900, and from here, you need to proceed first to the Pordoi fork and then to climbing the 638 route you reach, crossing easy rocks, the summit, where is located the famous refuge Piz Fassa, from which you can admire one of the most exciting 360 degrees views of all the Alps, with breathtaking views of Marmolada, Gardena, Catinaccio and Sassolungo.
No special equipment is needed, if not the indispensable to tackle a demanding mountain itinerary. The only precaution is to carefully consider the weather, because sudden storms can cause many problems, because the road is littered with metal ropes that often attract lightnings.
For those who want to try a more challenging ascent, there are several routes that start at the base of the mountain: from the Pordoi pass, taking the trail that starts alongside the monument dedicated to cyclist Fausto Coppi, or from Gardena pass through the Cavazza Pisciadù refuge; alternatively, from Colfosco in Badia it is possible to take the challenging route that runs through the screes of Val di Mesdì, certainly more challenging than all the other options available.
