A high-mountain trail event in the High Lumiei Valley - Alta Val Lumiei - lying between Carnia and Cadore, a circular route designed over and around the spectacular basin of the Sauris lake.

46 Km and D+3000, with start and finish on the Pura Pass area.

A magic trail through the taintless scenery of the Alps of the North East - Alpi Carniche -, running along ancient tracks dwellers trod to support the poor mountain economy based on hay harvesting, forestry and summer mountain grazing, today mostly abandoned.

Free from high tension towers, cableway pylons and mass trippers, this is the Reign of Silence: a charming and highly emotional landscape and a gold-mine as variety of flora is concerned.

As you move forward along the route, the lake's emerald waters keep showing to your right while, at every step you take, the waters display a new shade of green: a strong call to slow down and enjoy the experience.
