Hiking map: Walking tour to the Malga di cavalli


In low season, spring and autumn when there is no shuttle bus from Brückele/Ponticello up at Prato Piazza/Plätzwiese you need to calculate 1 ½ hours more going up. This high mountain walk through the rocks is really beautiful with excellent views not only at the Tre Cime.
