Mountains are full of natural obstacles, a seemingly insurmountable challenge for people who have limited motor skills.
Mount Lagazuoi, however, is accessible to all.
Even if Mount Lagazuoi lies in the heart of the rugged Dolomites, its summit can now also be reached by people with reduced mobility.
With no architectonic barriers from the parking at the Falzarego pass up to the panoramic terrace next to the mountain station, the Lagazuoi cable car is complete accessible to disabled people.
Now everybody can admire the universal beauty of the Dolomites, visit Lagazuoi Refuge, the open-air museum of the World War 1 and the exhibitions of the gallery Lagazuoi Expo Dolomiti. Ramps and a lift ensure complete accessibility to every area of this new and innovative exhibition site where everyone can visit interesting temporary exhibitions both in summer and in winter.

From the terrace of the Lagazuoi cable car a wheelchair accessible path leads to the beautiful terrace of the refuge.
Rifugio Lagazuoi, the highest and largest mountain hut of Cortina d'Ampezzo, is worldwide known as the most panoramic terrace of the Dolomites. It is equipped with all services for disabled people, including a stairlift.
Starting from Lagazuoi refuge everyone can reach the summit cross of the Piccolo Lagazuoi at an altitude of 2778 m. on the old path of the First World War.
Now that this dirt path has been restored, it is suitable for people with reduced mobility and even for wheelchair users.
The path has been restored by the volunteers of the A.N.A. section of Treviso.
For the cable car ride up the mountain it is recommended to evaluate the high altitude of the top station of the cable car as well as the speed and the difference in height (from 2,100 m to 2,752 m in 3 minutes).
