The Tofana di Rozes (3.225 m) is the amazing scenery of this hike. The hike takes place in the neighborhood of Cortina D’Ampezzo. It is a magnificent ascent inside the heart of the Tofane Group, a true immersion in the Dolomites typical landscape. The hike does not present particular difficults, but has to be approached with caution because of the altitude (max. 2.600 mt) and severe environment in which it takes place. Check accurately weather forecasts before you begin the trail.The hike starts from “Dibona” Hut, where you can leave your car (8km from Cortin along the way to Passo Falzarego). Caution with your car in the last 2km of dirt road. The Hut is the ideal starting point of many climbs and crossings in the Tofane Group. From the Hut, take path 403 that begin to ascent inside the Valon de Tofana, a large stony, gravelly valley, where the trees and the mountain pines disappear soon to be replaced by rocks and very white gravel.

Following the path does not present orientation difficulties, however avoid easy shortcuts that go up to the maximum slope as you might find yourself double work slipping on the gravel. In about 1,30 hrs you will pass a narrow and zigzagging rocky saddle and in 10 minutes you will reach the Giussani Hut, in a wonderful and peaceful area called Forcella Fontananegra. The view on the enormous rock mass of the Tofana is phenomenal.
