Dolomites Hike: Seceda to Regensburger Hütte

 

The loop hike from the mountain summit station Seceda to the mountain hut Regensburger Hütte is a gorgeous and surprisingly easy hike in the Puez Odle Nature Park in the Dolomites. At the mountain summit, there’s a magnificent view of the dagger-like Fermeda peaks and Gran Odla. When we began our hike in the late morning, we could only see part of the peaks, because of the lingering fog. By the time we finished the hike, the fog had cleared, revealing the rocky belly of the slanted pinnacles.

But first, the hike cuts through Pieralongia. You’ll find a mountain hut here situated among fallen rocks. To say the landscape is striking would be a huge understatement. It looks like a sacred pagan place of worship and sacrifice.
