Ai Dodici Apostoli Refuge           

The Dodici Apostoli Refuge is the westernmost of the Brenta Group refuges. It stands at 2,489 m. a.s.l. on a rocky outcrop which dominates the Nardis Valley and offers splendid views over the Presanella. It is less central than other refuges and for this reason is less popular. The traditional way up runs from the Nardis Valley, at whose mouth it is possible to take several routes: a) from the north across the luxuriant Agola Valley, b) from the west up from Giustino or Massimeno over the ridges of the Flanginech Valley, c) again from the west climbing up from Pinzolo towards Prà Rodont and the Dos Sabion peak (the ski-lifts are open in season) and d) from the south along the Algone Valley via the Malga Movlina. It is also possible to reach the refuge along more demanding routes through the Sacco Valley (path 341) and through the Vallon valley – the latter however is for the expert and very fit hiker. Near the refuge stands a small chapel carved out of the rock, dedicated to the fallen in the mountains. The refuges nearest to the Dodici Apostoli are the Agostini and Brentei, both of which can be reached along rather difficult itineraries. The Mingotti Way starts from the Bocca d’Ambiez pass and climbs towards the Cima Tosa peak.

Access routes to the Refuge: from the Agola  Valley along paths 324 and 307

difference in height  : m. 1169 maximum heightm.2489 , R.12 Apostoli
Description: this is an access route without any particular traps for the unwary: after the fork on the Pian di Nardis plain the path goes past the Tovo Randolan peak scree and begins to climb up a series of rock steps (the “Scala Santa” or Holy Steps) as far as the refuge.
