Level of Difficulty: intermidiate
Today’s stage brings you to a variety of landscapes. The first part of the trek is surrounded by an environment of open grassland and coniferous forests leading up to the great “busa" of Campofilone, passing by one of the most interesting and mostly unknown forest area of the plateau called “Bosco Secco” (dry forrest), a protected area with an ancient and primitive forest that will take you along the slopes of Mountain Zebio and Mountain Zingarella.
An easily detour from the main path will take you to this protected area for bird watching too. The second part of the trails goes up the eastern slopes of Mount Zebio through woods and across the main front line of 1st World War 1915-18 (it will be possible to visit the museum of Mount Zebio). You will than continue easily at the bottom of Mount Zingarella, where with a little attention it will be easy to spot chamois and deer stationed on the east slope of Mountain, until you will arrive to Galmarara Valley for one of the most incredible views of the Altopiano plateau.
You will check in at the local lodge, Malga Galmarara, for dinner and accomodation.

Distance: 14.51 km
Total Climb: +856 m-815m Average Slope: +9.7 -10.4 Maximum +40.0 -43.0
Level of Difficulty: difficult
A nice trekking day to discover a wild area populated with plants and wild animals. It is possible in the morning with a little bit of luck to encounter some eagles and deers. The trail climbs gently
alongside of Mount Arsenale and then down the spectacular Portule Valley, one of the most beautiful valley of the Altopiano Plateau, almost untouched, marked only by ruins left by the 1st World War. We are within an outdoor museum of endless dimensions. You can make a short detour to the site of Campogallina, one of the most interesting areas of the wider outdoor museum named "walk of peace."
The climb to the top of Mount Portule is richly rewarded with an opening horizon that allows the eye to admmire some of the highest peaks of the plateau (Mount 12 and Mount Ortigara) and in addition the full view of the Eastern Alps (Dolomites). You will then continue down to lodge Rifugio Larici where you will check in for dinner and accomodation.
