This loop itinerary will make you experience a unique adventure starting from both the Treviso or Belluno side. It will be a unique experience among alpine huts and pastures where silence is broken only by the sound of cowbells. You will enjoy breathtaking views and discover places where the scars of the First World War are still clearly visible. You will also have the chance to taste the typical local products in one of the many alpine huts and, looking upwards, admire hundreds of coloured sails that will accompany you along your way.
