From Rifugio Principe, the paths of the dolomites trekking can be two, we can overpass the Antermoja big peak of the side north or on the side south. Generally I prefer the side south because the panoramas are more extended especially on the souther Dolomites. then we continue along the famous Frederick August path to the Sella Pass where we overnight in the oldest Refugio of the central Dolomites: the Rifugio Valentini.

During the fourth day of the Dolomites trekking we will pass from the Central Dolomites to the Eastern Dolomites, this is not or only a pure geographic definition, but we will see the change of the geological struptures of the groups that we will traverse in this long day. Secondary but not for this less important: we will traverse the line of the front of the World War One, and from here we will follow it, along bunkers and trenches, until Cortina. Overnight at Rifugio Lagazuoi (2835 m.).
