In this chapter we discuss the King's Road Excursion, through the Tibetan bridge, large valleys and historical monuments of the Great War.

The King's Road Excursion is a fairly easy and very fun ride to do, located on the Piccole Dolomites in the Vicenza Prealps. It was inaugurated in 1918 by Vittorio Emanuele III, from whom it took its name, and it was an important route for climbing the Pasubio and Sengio Alto massifs. Today this beautiful walk is very popular, even for those with small children, because it is both easy to reach and to tackle.

To embellish the tour, after a landslide that heavily damaged the route a few years ago, is the magical Tibetan bridge 105 meters long, about half an hour away from Pian delle Fugazze, installed at about 35 meters high on a breathtaking valley . The steel bridge called Ponte dei Donatori AVIS is quite narrow, and it is difficult to pass in two, (otherwise it would not be a Tibetan bridge), but with a little patience you can cross it.

After the bridge, continue towards the Campogrosso rifugio for a picnic, through the spectacular panorama of the Piccole Dolomites. Then the path continues with a short climb up to a wide plateau, where you can meet grazing cows, thus reaching the fork at 1585 meters, from here you go down to the parking lot through the woods.

 

The excursion is suitable for anyone, the route is very popular with people walking and families, thanks also to the well-kept road surface. Pay attention to the ice that forms during the winter. We recommend a calm pace, to enjoy the wonderful landscape that will surround you.
