Prevala circuit

Itinerary, Sella Nevea - Canin Cableway - Gilberti shelter 1850 m. - Sella Prevala - Crossroads - Poviz mule track - Gilberti shelter- Sella Nevea: Excursion time 3.30 hoursDegree of difficulty ExcursionResting points Celso Gilberti shelter - 1850 m.This trail stretches across the karst highlands of Mount Canin . Going up by cableway that starts from Sella Nevea you reach the Celso Gilberti shelter (1850 m.). From here you start the circuit that initially stretches over the Prevala plain (which in Slovenian means "basin"), a vast depression where you find a snow field, which when there is a lot of snow, allows summer skiing to take place. Therefore, thanks to trail C.A.I. 636, you reach an environment that is full of fascination, Sella Prevala located on the Italian-Slovenian borderline and delimited by Mounts Golovec and Forato . The Sella represents the most comfortable pass of the Canin range and for a long time was the communication line between Sella Nevea and the Slovenian Bovec (Plezzo). It is a panoramic point from which you can observe the main Italian and Slovenian Julian Alps. From Sella Prevala you proceed along a trail that initially goes upwards along the side of Mount Golovec to then descend across the plateau until you come to the Poviz mule track (1850 m.) from Sella Nevea. From here there is the last section of trail that allows you to return to the Gilberti shelter cross a rough and level environment at an altitude consisting of masses channelled by the water and covered by mountain pines. From the Gilberti shelter, as an alternative to the descent by cableway, you can return to Sella Nevea by following the skiing track.MOUNT FORATO - 2498 m. (alpine variant)From Sella Prevala (2067 m.) you follow the trail towards the south-west around Cime Pecorelle , first on grassy cliffs then on rocky banks full of some of the rarest forms of vegetation present on the Canin mountains . You proceed in the north-west direction, still following the well-signalled trail that quickly brings you to the peak at 2498 metres. From the peak of Mount Forato you can enjoy an extensive view of the Julian Alps, across the Friulan plain and, in good weather conditions, you can see the Gulf of Triest. Mount Forato gets its name thanks to the large natural window, which, according to legend, was opened by the devil. As said, the window hit the rocky side in the devil's attempt to reach the place where the Sanctuary of Castelmonte now rises, near Cividale, before the Madonna did so.
