Sass de Putia circular hike

Our circular walking tour around Mt Sass de Putia starts at the Passo delle Erbe mountain pass, we walk anticlockwise.

Equipped with water, fresh tomatoes, bacon, bread and sun cream we start in the early morning from the Ütia de Börz mountain hut at Passo delle Erbe (2,006 m a.s.l.) towards the Forcella di Putia, a mountain saddle. Until the foot of the mountain, past the Munt de Fornella pasture, we walk along a comfortable road. Afterwards a narrow path through scree leads us to our destination. The sun cares for glowing rocks and the still unmelted snow fields reflect the clear light.

The Forcella di Putia (2,361 m a.s.l.) is not only a perfect place to rest, here we can also decide to walk to the summit of the Big or Small Sass de Putia or the Genova mountain hut (2,306 m a.s.l.). If you decide to climb the Grande Sass de Putia (2,875 m a.s.l.) you have to manage a section with steel ropes before you can enjoy an unforgettable view on the Dolomites.

But we decide to continue our tour and follow the path n° 4B (afterwards 35) to complete the Sass de Putia circular hike. Passing the Ütia Vaćiara mountain pasture, we walk up to Passo Göma and the homonymous Ütia Göma mountain hut. From here, the path proceeds through a magical forest until the Munt de Fornella mountain pasture and further on to the Ütia de Börz mountain hut, where our circular walk ends.
