Monte Vioz and Punta Linke

Difficult excursion

By cable car and chair lift until Doss dei Gembri (2315m) and from there by the comfortable military path you climb on the mountainous ridge in direction of Monte Vioz (path SAT nr. 105). The final part of the path, after 3000m, is rather demanding, with numerous hairpin turns in the middle of rocks below “Mantova al Vioz” Refuge. A pleasant restorative stop lets you observe the panorama of surrounding peaks and, if the weather conditions allow, it is possible to reach the peak of Monte Vioz (3645m), where you could watch a magnificent sunset. Dinner and overnight stay at the refuge and in the morning you set out for the peak observing the crack of dawn. Soon you move in level (at the same height) to Punta Linke, arrival point of some cableways of the First World War.
Punta Linke was a crucial point for military supplies of troops stationed on the mountainous ridges and it was recovered by the Superintendent of the Archaeological Heritage of the Province of Trento, becoming the highest archaeological site in Europe. The tunnel and the underground shacks were freed from ice, which kept them sealed and preserved until today, and therefore we can now see the military environment of the early twentieth century in all its details. After the proper explanations and illustrations by the Guide, you will return to the Mantova Refuge for a short snack and in the afternoon, by the same path, you will descend to Peio Fonti.
Equipment needed: heavy boots, waterproof jacket, fleece, long technical fabrics trousers, gloves, woolen hat, rucksack, food, water bottle, sunglasses, sunscreen, trekking sticks could be helpful (crampons, harness and ice-axe are not necessary).
