Hiking route around the Bullaccia - Puflatsch

The hiking trail starts at the Alpina Dolomites Lodge, where you have to follow the signs towards the Gasthof Puflatsch. Shortly after the Alpina Dolomites, to the right, a path leads up to the Bullaccia Gasthof and the mountain station of the Telemix cableway. From there you’ll reach the Engelsrast (Angels’ Rest) viewpoint, where you can enjoy a 360° panoramic view of the surrounding mountains before continuing the round-route to the Fillner Cross and, along the edge of the plateau, to the highest point of the hike, the Puflatsch - Bullaccia (marking 24). The next stage is the “Hexenbänke” (Witches’ Benches), rocks that have the form of seats where according to a legend the witches of the Sciliar stopped to rest. The path leads down to the Goller Cross, with Castelrotto/Kastelruth and the Isarco/Eisack valley at the foot. Leading past the Arnikahütte, accompanied by views of the Sciliar, the path leads towards the Puflatschhütte. Above the hut, the trail merges into the roadway towards Compatsch.
