Golden Dolomites - Autumn hiking in the Rosengarten | Catinaccio
Golden Dolomites - Autumn hiking in the Rosengarten | Catinaccio with hiking guide Helga Tschager. We hike from the Karerpass | Passo Costalunga to the Rosengarten | Catinaccio, past rocky outcrops among which you can find fossilised ammonites and rare geodes. We pass under ancient stone pine trees and take our fill of the incomparable panorama of the golden Dolomite mountains. The red-golden coloured larch trees glow in the sunlight, the sky above us relaxes us. To the left and right of the path, you hear the warning whistle of the marmots, which they emit when danger approaches. I like to tell the legend of the queen of the marmots there. With a view of the climbing wall of the Masarè and the face of the giant on the opposite Latemar mountain, past the hidden blooming edelweiss, we hike on to the Paolina hut. Above us, the huge rock faces of the Rosengarten glow ochre-red, bringing greetings from the last roses of King Laurin's kingdom.
