Spice up the legendary round trip around the Three Peaks and extend the tour through the Büllelejoch. From the Auronzo hut, route no. 101 leads no significant ascents to the Lavaredo hut. A bit behind the hut, turn right towards Büllelejoch (path no. 104). It goes downhill on the south side of the Paternkofel for a while, and as expected, uphill for quite a while. On the hillside behind Lago di Cengia take path no. 107 and soon reach the Büllelejoch. It is recommended to go to the Büllelejoch hut and take a rest although you have not quite half the tour behind you, but a stop in the totally overrun three-peaks hut is not everyone's taste. Back to the Büllelejoch and on route n. 101 on the north side of the Paternkofel to the three-peaked hut. From here, take a path towards Paternsattel (path no. 101), but soon turn right onto path no. 105 in the direction of Lange Alm. Here, too, you leave the majority of ants road behind you. The path leads downhill to the Rienzboden and up again to the plateau of the Langen Alm. This part of the tour is felt especially in the length! Once you have reached the east side of the battlements, it is not far to the parking lot at the Auronzo hut.
