Tunnel of the Piccolo Lagazuoi

The Lagazuoi tunnel is unique of its kind and fascinates with its history.

It tells us about the enormous amount of work done by the soldiers up there and about the immense suffering of the two opposing troops during the First World War.

The rare window-like openings cut out of the rock offer a spectacular view of the entire area.

The tunnel hike is an excellent choice when the weather is iffy.

Given the steepness, the tunnel is usually descended. But also uphill it is fascinating, especially if you consider that the soldiers transported food and ammunition up to the front on this way.

The tunnel is completely equipped with guiding cables and the hike is not particularly demanding.

The upper entrance to the tunnel can be reached directly from the Lagazuoi refuge on a marked path.

Taking the bottom entrance to the tunnel, you can reach the Martini Ledge and there see the soldiers’ huts and other military remnants. Then follow the marked path to quickly reach path no.402 for the final drop to the Falzarego pass.

Warm clothing is strongly recommended as it is cold and damp in the tunnel.

The path winds in the dark bowels of the mountain, that’s why the gear you need includes a helmet and an electric torch.

These can be conveniently rented at the Falzarego pass.
