Vacanze al Lago di
Molveno, Dolomiti di Brenta
Dolomites - The
access valleys and paths.
This valley lies in the southern
part of the Brenta Group. It runs from the Ponte Pią gorge (River Sarca) as far
as the Gotro Pass (1,847 m.) which separates it from the Agola Valley. A 15 km
unmetalled road runs along it as far as the Malga Movlina. To the west it is
bounded by the rock spurs of the Sabbion-Tov-Iron chain of mountains and to the
east by the Cresta dei Camosci crest and the Vallon subgroup.
Its most important
lateral valleys are the Sacco and Vallon which lead towards the Prato Fiorito
hanging glaciers and which are an alternative, if somewhat tiring, route to the
Dodici Apostoli Refuge or to the Ideale path.
From the geological point of view
the Algone Valley has crystalline formations (granite) which alternate with the
dolomite rock of the Brenta Group. Near the Ghedina Refuge (1,120 m.) the
remains of an old glassworks from the 18th century can be seen. There
are a wide range of species of trees while animals found here include two
prestigious birds of prey, the lammergeier and the golden eagle.

From the Ghedina Refuge to the Malga Nambi (1,375 m.): go up as far as
the car park and then turn right onto path 341b (which joins path 341 a
short distance above) and climb up the Sacco Valley past the Dodici
Apostoli Pass (2,620 m.) until you come to the Dodici Apostoli Refuge.
short distance after the Ghedina Refuge, near the Malga Vallon (1,210 m.),
you can take path 359 which climbs up the Vallon valley to the Busa Fonda
hollow; from here the path winds between the slopes of the Cima Vallon
peak in the west and Corno di Senaso peak in the east and crosses the Busa
di Vallon Inferiore hollow. Continue climbing between the Le Tose and Cima
Padaiola peaks as far as the Busa di Vallon Superiore hollow and then the
Vallon Pass. From here, the route passes the Dodici Apostoli hanging
glaciers to join path 341 which comes up from the Sacco Valley. (Warning:
after the Busa Fonda hollow the path becomes less and less clearly marked
and it is easy to miss your way).
