Experience an Unforgettable Adventure.
Mount Gabler or Mount Forca as it is also called, can be easily reached with the new Pfannspitz cable car in only 45 minutes of walking time! Already one hour before sunrise, still in the darkness and under a bright starry sky, the Pfannspitz cable car gets operating and takes all early birds from Skihütte / Rifugio Sci on Mount Pfannspitz/Fana, from where you can reach Mount Gabler on trail n. 7. After a unique sunrise with a view on Mount Putia, the Odle Mountains of Eores and Funes and further away other peaks of the the Dolomites a rich breakfast with South Tyrolean products awaits us in one of the huts on Mount Plose.
Enjoy the silence and the first sun beams of the day with a breathtaking view on the Dolomites.
