XXI Apostoli Mountain Refuge Cabin, a long and pleasant walk reaching the heart of the Brenta Dolomite Alps

The departure is from Malga Movlina hut (in summer season both a reservation and a 6 euro ticket are required for parking). From there, you can reach this rocky amphitheater in about 3 hours.  There are peaks and pinnacles, and carved into the rock, there is a small church in memory of the soldiers who have perished in the mountains.

The refuge is named for magnificent rock formations adjacent to the nearby pass, from which the silhouettes of the 12 apostles can be glimpsed in the stone.

 

Rovereto Hostel - XXI Apostoli Mountain Refuge Cabin (credits Francesco Serafini)Unmissable after the first hour and a half of walking is the famous “holy staircase“, a small portion of an equipped path that allows you to climb a steep and rocky Dolomite Alp Rovereto Hostel - XXI Apostoli Mountain Refuge Cabin (credits Francesco Serafini)and reach an altitude within the last 200 meters of the top.  In some points, it’s equipped with metallic climbing cables for grip.

From the refuge cabin, a beautiful ring route is recommended for returning to the starting point of the excursion. It goes through the pass of the XII Apostles, followed by a very scenic path to back to the Malga Movlina hut.

Is your backpack ready? Don’t forget to bring plenty of water, because the nice fountain supplies only non-drinkable water to the refuge. The alternative is to buy a 1.5 liter bottle at the modest price of €3.00. A nice water purification system in these high altitude refuge cabins would be an onerous enterprise, but highly appreciated by the hundreds of hikers who expect to enjoy clear fresh drinking water after reaching high altitude.
