Excursion to Rifugio VII°Alpini: the route

The starting point for this itinerary is at the free car park in Case Bortot, which can be reached from Belluno. From here, follow the dirt road to the right of the car park (path no. 501), which bears signs for Bus del Buson and Rifugio VII°Alpini. After a few minutes, the road turns into a path, proceeding slightly downhill, with very exposed stretches that allow a glimpse of the valley of the Ardo torrent. After about 1 hour's walk, the path becomes more impervious, until it reaches Ponte Mariano. After about 2 hours of walking, we reach a scenic spot, where the torrent creates spectacular waterfalls and water games that make the itinerary particularly interesting. From this point, the path becomes very impervious, so much so that this last stretch is called "Calvary". After crossing a beech forest, the landscape opens up, offering a view of the imposing Schiara group and our coveted destination: the 7th Alpine Refuge. For the return we follow the same path as the outward journey.
