Cycle tourism in Trentino Alto Adige
With snowshoes on the Cime di Canfredin
The celestial silences of Paganella
Snowshoes allow us in Paganella to discover the heavenly silences of the Cime di Canfedin, which await us there, around the corner, a stone's throw from the modern cable car that leads from Andalo to the top.
The summit horizon of Canfedin, the twin peak of Paganella, but isolated to the south, is an exciting discovery where moving with snowshoes becomes an easy conquest for everyone and within half a day you can reach truly enchanted places.
Arrived at the top station of the cable car, Dos Pelà at 1,772 m. of altitude, and put on the snowshoes, we start towards the south leaving the ski slopes on our right and go up towards the Malga Terlaga bending slightly to the left up to the San Antonio Pass, keeping upstream of the arrival of the homonymous chairlift.
A short descent of a few meters leads to the pass where clear signs show us the way which is still all visible.
First continue briefly on the right of the long ridge that slowly culminates in the Canfedin summit paying attention to the wild precipices that descend on the left; following the morphology of the mountain, the large panettone reassembles and proceeds safely to the top.
The spiers of the Brenta are so gigantic and close that it seems to touch them with one hand, while to the south it is all a degradation of reliefs that are lost on the horizon of Lake Garda. To the north, behind the Paganella peak, the peaks of Alto Adige, while to the east the peaks and forests of the Lagorai stand out mysteriously.
For the return you can follow the uphill track in the opposite direction.
NOTE: Not to be undertaken in case of fog or bad weather: just beyond the Passo di S. Antonio the isolation is total and the vastness of the undulating landscape requires absolute visibility.
