Today we go to the most popular track in the Italian Dolomites. Route around the Three Jags or Tre Cime di Lavaredo. I tell you where to go, how much it costs and which route to go. This is a 3-5 hour walk.
Immediately put things in order with the names. In Italian, the mountains are called Tre Cime di Lavaredo (Tre Cime di Lavaredo), and in German Drei Zinnen (Dry Cinnen). They belong to Parco naturale Tre Cime.
What we should see at Tre Cime di Lavaredo
The first thing that meets us is the price tag for parking (coordinates on the map).
Just paid € 25 at the booth.
After a dozen twisting serpentines, we arrive at a giant parking lot (its coordinates). Come early. We were at 10 a.m. on Friday in August. Empty seats are already running out.
Itinerary around Drei Zinnen
From the parking lot we follow the sign 101. The whole crowd goes there, you won’t get lost.
The picturesque beginning of the route. The road is good, with almost no slope.
We pass directly under the rocks of Tre Cime di Lavaredo. A large breakaway boulder almost climbed the path.
A small additional path 101a to go to see the gorge.
Chapel Cappella degli Alpini. This is the first stop.
Cappella degli alpini
The route is very imposing, so everyone makes a stop at the Rifugio Lavaredo shelter. On the map, it is designated as 1 restaurant.
The prices are biting, and what do you want. Food delivery is expensive, the place is tourist. Have some coffee.
Go ahead. We walk around the Drei Zinnen cliffs around.
A small stop overlooking the valley. In the distance you can see the house, this is the end point. Walk another 40 minutes.
The reverse side of the photograph.
Doggie is good.
We reached the shelter Dreizinnenhütte or Rifugio A. Locatelli-S. Innerkofler. On the map is designated as 2 restaurant. The distance from the parking lot is 4.4 km. The difference in height is 290m. The end of the first part of route 101.
It's time to dine. There are no food problems in Italy. You can not take anything with you.
Menu in Rifugio A. Locatelli
Thrifty tourists, like us, take food with them and settle on the rocks.
Ready to walk a little more around the Laghi del Pian lakes? The lakes are modest, but the reflections in them are epic. Cows graze around. And most importantly, the crowd of tourists ends. If you wish, you can continue the route and go down from the mountains.
Shaggy plants grow in the meadows. Reminiscent of cotton.
3 cliffs are visible from everywhere.
We are moving back. On the map it is indicated as 105. The length is 6 km. The photo shows a long climb of 337 m.
After rising again, the Malga Langalm Shelter Restaurant.
The menu is modest. Only snacks.
On the way, you can see immediately 2 lakes - Lago di Misurina and a smaller one Lago d'Antorno. It seems that they are next to each other. Actually not, they are even at different heights.
By the way, on the way back, do not forget to stop at Lake Lago d'Antorno. Parking there for 2 hours for free. Write on a piece of paper under the glass the parking start time or put the parking watch on. Parking coordinates by the lake.
The route is over. Wandered about 6 hours. With you were Misha and Lena.

Everything is very simple - look not only at the booking. I prefer the search engine RoomGuru. He is looking for discounts at the same time on Booking and on 70 other booking sites.
