One of the most beautiful via ferratas in the Dolomites.
The Via Ferrata Mesules is classified as difficult. It is very exposed, especially in the first part where the greatest difficulties are found. The second part is much less demanding. For the return we have chosen to take the shortcut: under Piz Miara take an unmarked path to the right that leads to Val Lasties and to the return path n. 647. This avoids much of the crossing of the plateau by not passing through the Forcella d'Antersass (in terms of time about 1.5 hours).
Throughout the itinerary you can enjoy a fabulous 360 degree panorama.
From the car park (2070 m) go up to Passo Sella (2240 m) on an asphalted road. As soon as you pass the Hotel Mariaflora, path no. 649, which in 30 minutes leads to the start of the via ferrata (2290 m). You go up the first section of the via ferrata, then there is an exposed path and on rocks and finally the second section of the via ferrata (3 hours of via ferrata). In a few minutes you go up to Piz Selva (2941 m) and then you go to Piz Miara (2964 m). Here you go down and take the shortcut (not signposted) along the Valon Bianch with equipped points and arrive in Val Lasties (2330 m). Following the path 647 you arrive at the paved road and then at the starting point.
