The tre cime di lavaredo is an unreal hiking route in the Italian Alps, the Dolomites. Easiest way to get here, is by car. Closest city is Auronzo di Cadore. You can park your car next to Lake Misurina and take a bus up to Rif. Auronzo, the starting point of this hiking route.
This is only a day hike, if I remember this correctly, it took about 5-6 hours to walk the entire circular route. There are many other routes around and many of them are crossing this one, so you could get on a further and more technical hike if you would like to. We did not have that much time when we were in the area, so we just did the Tre Cime di Lavaredo route. But boy, after this route, you will feel so happy that you could die in peace with no regrets.
The peaks look like something from another planet. Just take a look at my photos below and see for yourself (click on them for enlargement):
Very peculiar shape.
The shapes make it perfect
It is so freaking beautiful here, and if you like hiking, this is your place to be. You get utterly spoiled with great views in every direction. The weird shape of the mountains are astonishing and you can´t stop staring at them. This place looks like nothing else. Nothing I have seen anyways…
Weird shapes of the Dolomites.
Cows with a world-class view
We met some cows on this hike as well. They probably have the best feeding place in the world. I still wonder if they can appreciate it…. ? I really hope they do, and that they understand that they are some lucky bastards!
Cows and dorks.
What´s not to like?
Yeah, I can´t think of any…. on this hike, the mountains are amazing, the peaks really freakin´cool, the lakes are the perfect color and the views to die for. And the cities in the Dolomites are often small, cute and filled with friendly people who loves the outdoor. And since this is Italy, the food is awesome!
I love the Italian alps! So can you guess how I will rate the tre cime di lavaredo? ;-D
You nailed it! 5 out of 5 stars!
