Turn-by-turn directions

Start from Monte Pana and take the Mont de Sëura chairlift to reach the Mont de Sëura mountain pasture at the foot of the Sassolungo. Surrounded by steep rocky walls reaching to the sky, the path (n° 526B - 528 - 526) proceeds to Passo Sella; from here, take the traditional gondola lift to Forcella Sassolungo. It is also possible to reach the Sassolungo gap by foot following the path n° 525 (approximately 1 hour). Walk past the Sassolungo Group on a breathtaking, serpentine path (n° 525) between the Sassolungo and the Punta delle Cinque Dita and return via a forest path (n° n. 526 - 526B) to the excursion’s starting point.
