What people say

"Hike the Cardini di Misurina trail! Located opposite the equally imposing Tre Cime di Lavaredo in the Dolomites, Cadini di Misurina are a group of mountains that soar like sharp rock monoliths from the surrounding valley below. What separates them from the rest of the Dolomiti mountains is their striking formations, boundless layers and grandness - they stand strong, big and beautiful, changing their appearance through each hour of the day. There are two ways to hike to Cadini di Misurina - the short hike from Rifugio Auronzo, which is short, but comes with a €30 toll charge, or from Lago d’Antorno, which is more strenuous, but free! 1) First Way: Start at the carpark and walk to the Rifugio. Follow the nondescript path on the right. You should see the unique peaks of Cadini di Misurina in the distance. Look for the sign for hiking trail #117. This is the 9.2km trail to Rifugio Col de Varda. Follow it to start the hike. The hike starts rocky with a 500m downhill walk until the path levels out. Follow the path along the ridgeline with Auronzo di Cadore valley on your left and the peaks surrounding Cortina d'Ampezzo on your right. After a while, the path leads up to Cadini di Misurina. At the junction, choose the right path for a more relaxed hiking experience. Follow the pathway right and you'll slowly make your way up and around the ridgeline. After around 15 minutes, you will arrive at a pathway that leads down to the famous Cadini di Misurina viewpoint. 2) Second Way: To avoid paying the €30 toll fee, you can take an alternative hike from Lago D'Atorno car park to Cadini Di Misurina. Be warned, some parts of the hike are quite steep and mostly uphill. Starting at Lago d'Antorno, follow path 101/119 uphill through the pine forest towards Rifugio Auronzo. After about 45 minutes, you can veer right and take the path up to Cadini di Misurina viewpoint instead of towards Rifugio Auronzo. The 4.5km return hike has an elevation gain of over 500m, making it quite tiring."
"Recently it has become one of the most famous viewpoints in the Dolomites seen on Instagram. This spot is still on my bucket list, even though I was so close to it (without even knowing that it exists). If you already reached Tre Cime and found it too crowded, I have one more options for you! This mysterious Instagram spot is actually much closer and easily accesible that you think! And the best part is that you can combine both hikes in one day (if you still don't have enough) "
"When you go on this hike you’ll have amazing views of both Cadini di Misurina and Tre Cime. Also a much less popular hike but in my opinion, just as beautiful. Distance: 2 miles (3.2km) Difficulty: Easy Time: 1-2 hours Location: Near Tre Cime (same parking lot) Amd Cortina d’Ampezzo "
