USEFUL TIPS

The area of the event is characterised by alpine climate and high altitude climatic conditions; the nature of the land and its morphology are typical of the mountain environment.

For this reason, we encourage you to consult guides and topographic maps before you choose the paths you will be walking along.

In case of long walking, physical training should be evaluated carefully. Please consider the fact that physical performance and resistance tend to decrease at high altitudes.

The Human Chain path around the Three Peaks is an easy one and it is suitable for everyone. However, please make sure you read carefully the list of what you should put in your backpack.

Clothing and equipment

The mountain shelters in the area will be at your disposal, as well as the staff of the Mountain Rescue and of the Italian Alpine Club, who will be on site during the event. Before the event, staff will be available to answer any further questions you might have concerning the best solutions and to advise you on the practical aspects of your stay in the mountains. Please do take some time to consult the websites below.

 

It is fundamental you take into account the weather conditions and weather forecast.

At high altitudes, temperatures can fall close to zero (even in September); summer snowfalls and sudden weather changes are not uncommon.

Therefore, we invite you to see the ARPA VENETO website to get information about accurate weather forecast (images are available thanks to a webcam which is installed in the area of the Three Peaks of Lavaredo). You can also see the website of the Provincia Autonoma di Bolzano.
