Hotel Hohe Gaisi to the Hotel Dolomitenhof
July 15, 2008 I left the Hotel Hohe Gaisi (Pradopiazza) at 8:00a and started the five mile walk down to Schluderbach Carbonin. This section of the hike started out from the hotel and led down a rough paved track, through open farmland in the high valley of the Pratopiazza, to the Durrenstein Hutte (2040m – 6693ft) (8:20a). From the Durrenstein Hutte the road dropped sharply down through forest via many switchbacks to the valley below, emerging at Schluderbach Carbonin (1439m – 4721ft). I stopped here for a cup of coffee and to wait for the bus that would take me up the road to Lago di Misurina and the Tre Cime di Lavaredo.
