Ambiez Valley - San Lorenzo in Banale

previous up next

This is the main access valley for the peaks of the southern part of the Brenta Group. Furrowed by the Torrente Ambiez river, it runs for about 10 km from south to north, from Dorsino to the Ambiez hanging glacier. To the east, starting from the south, it is bounded by the following peaks: Crona della Violetta, Dos Alt, Dos delle Saette, Dos Arnal, Cima Ghez, Dos di Dalum, Cima Ceda Orientale, Cima Ceda Occidentale, Cima Garbari and Cima Tosa. To the west, starting from the south, it is bounded by: Dos Cadimon, Dos delle Fratte, Crona Vecchia, Cima Crona, Maruggini, Cima Forcolotta, Corno di Senaso, Cimon di Cresole, Tose, Cima Prato Fiorito, Cima d’Agola and Cima Ambiez. The numerous malghe or shepherds’ huts show the importance over the centuries of the grazing land in the Ambiez Valley. There are also numerous itineraries which run along the whole of the valley: across the Bocca di Ambiez and Bocca della Tosa passes it is possible to reach the main refuges in the Brenta: the Dodici Apostoli, Pedrotti and Brentei. A taxi service in the form of a jeep links San Lorenzo in Banale with the Al Cacciatore Refuge
