Hike to the Brusada mountain hut

An easy but extended hike proceeds from Valdaora di Sopra to the 1,900 m high located meadows of the Brusada mountain hut

The village of Valdaora di Sopra is an ideal starting point for our hike to the Brusada mountain hut (Malga Brusada, Brunstalm in German). Starting in the village centre, we follow the path n° 20 towards south. The path proceeds slightly uphill to the Brusada valley. After a bridge across the Rio Brusada, path n° 20b branches off to the right. The path turns into a gravelled road which we walk along up to the Brusada alpine pasture.

This route is about 1 km longer than the hiking trail n° 20, but less steep. After some bends we reach the meadows of the Brusada mountain hut (1,890 m a.s.l.). At the hut there is also an inn which serves South Tyrolean delicacies. From the sunny clearing we enjoy a nice view on the Monte Muro and Mt Cima dei Colli Alti, two peaks of the Braies Dolomites, as well as on Mt Plan de Corones. For the way back we take the same route.
