Departure from Ciampedie at 09.00 a.m. to the Roda di Vael for the paths or "Vial de le feide" or "Alta via dei Fassani".
We go into the history of the valley, in Ladin history, retracing the stages of rural life before the advent of tourism.
From agriculture to livestock farming, the process that changed rural life, where supreme was a subsistence economy based mainly on the cultivation of potatoes, wheat and rye. Gradually, over the centuries, small farms also took hold, which then led to the transformation of milk into fine and now famous cheeses.
Along the way we can admire the most beautiful flowers of the Dolomites such as edelweiss and nigritella. And not only that, we would also have the chance to meet the marmots and see their many dungeons, hear the calls of the sentinels and most probably we could see them playing or sunbathing.
From the Roda we proceed comfortably along the wide Hirzelweg path (no. 549) at an altitude of 2200m. The route is named after Hirzel, Leipzig's passionate hiker of the Dolomites, who promoted the construction of this almost horizontal route. A hundred metres to the east, we suggest you stop to observe the marmots in the Pasché Valley below. Continuing on we will reach the monument to Theodor Christomannos, a bronze eagle three meters high situated in a panoramic position over the Fassa and Ega Valleys. By chairlift we will return to the Costalunga Pass where we can already admire the imposing summer residence of Princess "Sissi", the Grand Hotel Carezza. In the valley at about 2.20/14.30 pm the bus of the Sad line to Vigo di Fassa and Pera di Fassa, the next one is at about 4.20/16.30 pm.
