This track is one of the highlights of the Dolomites of Sesto. During World War I it has been build by Italian mountain troops, called Alpini.
It is not a strada, but a very narrow and very exposed mountain path which leads through a wonderful landscape with canyons and high walls. alpini path
This “strada” is a historic via ferrata.
The ledge called “Cengia della Salvezza” during the WW1 was used as a fast and efficient connection between the “Giralba pass” and the “Sentinella pass”. alpini path
It was decided to build this road, because the italian troops could not penetrate into Austrian territor from the south side.
The Alpini path was converted into a trail for experienced hikers since the 30’s.
It’s an easy via ferrata with unforgettable lookouts but in any case a serious mountain adventure. Some variants are possible, to be decided according to your skills and shape.
