Hike across the Pana wind gap to the Malga Brogles hut

A varied natural and cultural landscape and the breathtaking Dolomite scenery make this tour a real highlight for alpinists.

In the village of Ortisei in the Val Gardena we take the cable car up to the Furnes intermediate station, where our mountain hike starts. We follow the marker n° 2A towards Cuca / Seceda, first down to the valley and then to the forest road which proceeds uphill to the Sella Cuca, a mountain saddle. The wide but quite steep path leads us up to the Seceda Meadows and to the Curona mountain hut at the foot of the Odle Group.

There we follow the signpost n° 6 towards Brogles. The path leads us up to the Pana wind gap, the highest point of our hike today (2,450 m asl). Until here the hike was easy. Now we have to manage a demanding descent through the rocks between Mt Seceda and the Odle Group. Carefully we climb down until the glacial valley and a short ascent leads us to the popular Malga Brogles mountain hut with an unforgettable view on the Odle Group.

After our break we carry on to the Resciesa tavern, the path n° 35 proceeds flatly through the alpine meadows just above the timber line. At the tavern, also the mountain station of the Rasciesa Funicular is located, which takes us down to Ortisei again, where our hiking tour ends.
