Hike to the Sennes and Fodara Vedla mountain huts

The Sennes highland is located in the Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park, surrounded by the Dolomite peaks

From the Pederü mountain hut, which can be reached by a shuttle from San Vigilio di Maerbbe, we take the former military road up the mountain. The path seems to be stucked to the rocks, but it is comfortably wide and can be walked without problems. In the morning, however, this steep ascent all lies in the shadow, so that we don't need to sweat. We follow the path to the Sennes mountain hut. Soon we reach the high-alpine area that is characterised by mountain pines and alpine pastures.

The view ranges from Mt Croda di Becco and Mt Croda Rossa d'Ampezzo to the more distant Mt Cristallo, and from Mt Furcia dal Fers to the peak of the Cima Lavarella. A beautiful wooden cross marks the last turnoff to the Sennes mountain hut. Via the military airpost, which is today an alpine pasture with grazing cows, we reach the mountain hut where we intend to have lunch on time. After a hearty and tasty lunch, we enjoy the mighty panorama, before we start our way back.

Instead of walking directly back to the valley, we follow the signpost Ütia Fodara Vedla. This mountain hut, also a very famous mountain tavern, is an ensemble of various different wooden huts and a little chapel. If you are lucky as far as the weather is concerned, and you have a good eye for the great panorama and the little miracles of nature such as mountain flowers and butterflies, you can consider a day in this great surroundings balm for the soul.
