Great Scenery Plose
Experience an Unforgettable Adventure.
Morning dew on the meadows, shining mountain peaks and smiling faces. This feeling when you stand on the summit in the morning and watch the first rays of sunshine is indescribable!
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. Enjoy the silence and the first sun beams of the day with a breathtaking view on the Dolomites.
Height difference in ascent and descent: 140m, complete length of Trail is 4 km, route number 7
Difficulty: medium hike (surefootedness required)
Equipment: headlight, good shoes and warm clothing
Description: With the comfortable panoramic gondolas of the new Pfannspitz cable car in only 5 minutes you get from Skihuette up to about 2,500 m of altitude. From here trail number 7 leads up to Mount Gabler at 2,576 m. The very last part requires surefootedness. On Mount Gabler the panorama is breathtaking. You get an impressive view of the Dolomites in the early morning light.
From here you can either go back on the same way, follow number 7 until you reach the Panoramatrail Nr. 14 that leads you to Rossalm, or in the other direction, to Schatzerhütte.
Selected huts offer a rich breakfast with specialities of the region.
