A spectacular circuit route that initially crosses an area of wildness, through the Dolomiti Bellunesi National Park, off the beaten track, below the Spiz di Mezzodì, the Moschesin and through the Val Pramper.
The central section follows the classic route of the DXT 53 K, with evocative scree traverses on some of the most famous mountains of the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage site, including the Civetta and the Pelmo.
The final section of the track (DXT 103K) leads to the summit of the panoramic Mount Rite (2,183 m), home of the Messner Mountain Museum, the “Museum in the clouds”, built on the remains of World War I fortifications. It then climbs up towards the group of Bosconero with splendid views of the Rocchette and the Toanèlla and finally descends steeply into the valley.

Following the set off, you run through the S.SEBASTIANO – TAMER mountain group, moving on towards the Duran pass (km 17 – refreshment – 1605 m), where one of the most colossal rocky sequences starts that develops northwards with the MOIAZZA and CIVETTA.
Here, the terrain alternates between wide glacial circles and “solitary furrowed fields”. It is incredibly solemn and extremely exiting to run through the gigantic base of the “Grande Civetta” until the Coldai Hut (km 27,5 – refreshment – 2135 m).
You then run at the foot of the isolated yet grandiose Mount PELMO, a mountain that polarises your vision, a mountain considered to be amongst the most fascinating and unique of the Dolomites with the Staulanza Hut (km 37 – refreshment – 1766 m).
Finally, after Tamai pass (km 43,5 – refreshment – 1715 m), the trail reaches the spectacular panoramic point of the Monte PUNTA (km 47 – 1952 m). Southwards from here you will be able to admire the BOSCO NERO and SPIZ di MEZZODI’, that complete the coronation of the valley.
