Mt. Piz Pisciadù, an almost 3,000 m high peak in the Sella Group, is known for the eponymous lake and the mountain hut at its feet
Together with other impressive summits of the Sella Group, such as Mt. Dënt de Mezdì (2,881 m a.s.l.), Mt. Sas de Mezdì (2,978 m a.s.l.), the Berger Tower (2,861 m a.s.l.) and Mt. Antersass (2,907 m a.s.l.), Mt. Piz Pisciadù forms the Pisciadù Group in the northern part of the Puez Group.
Lake Pisciadù, Rif. Pisciadù mountain hut, Pisciadù Waterfalls, Brigata Tridentina Route (Pisciadù, in German) - also many other beautiful places bear the name of this peak. The Pisciadù Waterfalls near the Val Mezdì valley, for example, are a natural highlight of the Alta Badia which can be reached by mountain bike. At the foot of Mt. Piz Pisciadù, however, there is Lake Pisciadù (Lech dl Pisciadù) with the eponymous mountain hut on its shore.
The above mentioned Rif. Franco Cavazza al Pisciadù mountain hut at 2,595 m a.s.l. is accessible along the Brigata Tridentina Route, the most frequented and famous via ferrata of the Dolomites. As an alternative, the path no. 666 which coincides with a stage of the Dolomite High Route no. 2, snakes its way to the entrance of the Val Setus valley. Through the Vallon del Pisciadù and the Val de Tita valleys, it proceeds uphill to the 2,985 m high summit of Mt. Piz Pisciadù.
