    Belle traversée en balcon (sous la pluie et les grandes herbes mouillees...) dans les alpages entre le mont pieltinis et le col au dessus de sauris. Le panorama du mont pieltinis est superbe, il y a même une table d'orientation.

    Nice crossing in the balcony (in the rain and large wet grasses ...) in the pastures between Mount Pieltinis and the pass above sauris. The panorama of Mount Pieltinis is superb, there is even an orientation table.

    All the malgas were closed, early June. Casera Losa is under reconstruction. Only concrete roads no paths, less than 2km gravel road around Casera Losa. Hard for the feet.

    Depuis le Hameau de Mione, longue montée au Pas de la Forcella sur une route forestière bétonnée ou en cours de goudronnage.
    Dés l'arrivée au col, agréable impression d'etre enfin au coeur du sujet...Des vallons boisés,de vastes alpages pour une vie pastorale authentique et les dolomites en toile de fond !
    Pause casse croute à la Malga Losa, ou il est également possible de passer la nuit,avant de terminer la descente vers Sauris de Sotto sous un violent orage.

    Since Hamlet Mione, long climb to No Forcella on a concrete forest road or being surfaced. Dice arrival at the collar, nice feeling to be finally in the heart of the matter ... Wooded valleys, vast pastures for authentic and dolomites in the background pastoral life! Pause morning break at Malga Losa, or it is also possible to spend the night, before finishing the descent to Sauris Sotto under a severe thunderstorm.

    one of my favorite area (Val Pesarina) of the all Via Alpina2013 journey. No need to get down to Sauris unless you never tasted the smoked Prosciutto...
    Via Alpina stays up in the (cheese and bread) and water can be grabbed at friendly familly runned malga casera Pieltinis
    August 2013 rif Losa was still not opened (looks completed from outside tho)
    Passo della Forchia is a great location for bivouac. nearby casera Forge (sheeperd there if you want good company) probably can supply water and grappa
