Long and demanding stage due to differences in altitude, starting from the first ascent to the Sella di Favogna. Without technical difficulties, it flows pleasantly and gives great satisfaction.

The most beautiful moments are the top of Corno di Tres and the top of Monte Roen (2,116 m), an incredible balcony suspended over the Adige Valley, from where we also see the Brenta Dolomites and, for the first time, the alpine peaks of the Ortles-Cevedale group, with their sparkling glaciers.

Special Notes

Water points are absent until Malga di Romeno (there is only one emergency tank in the Kuhleger Bivouac).

description of the route

We take the path near the church of San Leonardo and we reach Favogna di Sopra. After a short stretch on the road, we return to the path, that with a steep climb (about 400 m height difference) takes us to the Sella di Favogna (1,563 m). Once at the pass, after catching our breath, we continue to climb to the top of Corno di Tres (1,812 m) (approximately 250 m height difference).

We proceed in continuous ups and downs in the woods, along the shoulder of the ridge, passing by some smaller peaks (Corno del Cervo, Cima Battaglione). Halfway, a small bivouac (Kuhleger) is suitable for a stop.

We arrive at the great Croce del Tempo, from there we start the last ramp (approximately 250 m height difference ) towards the top of Monte Roen (2,116 m). From Corno Cresta, suspended on the vertical eastern wall, we enjoy a 360 ° view: east, beyond the Adige Valley, Latemar, Catinaccio, Corno Nero, and Corno Bianco; west, beyond the Val di Non, the Brenta Dolomites, the Ortles-Cevedale group ...

We proceed in easy descent (approx. 200 m drop) towards Malga Smarano and Sfruz, an excellent point for a snack. Then on the up and down path, we head to the Malga di Romeno, from where on a carriage road we arrive downhill to the beautiful Rifugio Oltradige.

What to know

Monte Roen is part of the Anauni Mountains, which owe their name to the ancient people of the Anauni, who inhabited the Val di Non, subjected to Rome in the 1st century BC.

Interesting is the discovery made in Cles (capital of Val di Non), in 1869, of the Tabula Clesiana, a bronze plate of 46 AD bearing the edict, with which the Roman emperor Clodio, with great foresight, granted the Anauni population Roman citizenship.

What to see

Just below the top of Monte Roen, there are various mountain huts, including that of Smarano and Sfruz.

Go and visit it, you will meet the friendly Alan, willing to welcome you and tell you about the wonderful world of the mountain pasture.

what to eat

The municipality of Termeno on the Strada del Vino is the place of origin of the Gewürztraminer (in German gewürz means “aromatic”).

Having become famous both in Italy and abroad, it is a very fragrant wine that goes well with appetizers and fish. You can also visit the futuristic winery of Termeno.

“Coming down from Monte Roen we met Alan, the herdsman, with his family and his animals. We were struck by how little it takes to find your own dimension”
