Pralongià – Col di Lana Hike
In addition to the beauty of its landscapes, Col di Lana is also known for its role in the First World War. It turned to be the place of the most fierce fighting on the entire battlefront of the Dolomites. In April 1916 the Italian Army exploded a giant mine, blowing up the whole peak of Col di Lana, in order to get rid of an Austrian military post. Nowadays you can find there a small church commemorating the victims. Col di Lana can be reached from the Alpine Hut Pralongià following, at first, trail No. 23 that winds at the foot of the south face of Settsass. At the Sief Saddle you should turn to trail No. 21/a that leads to the top of Col di Lana. A part of the trail passes inside the Austrian trenches that have been recently restored. The hike to the top (2571 m a.s.l.) will take you about 3 hours.
