Mountain hike: Fanes - Col Bechei • South Tyrol
The summit of Col Bechei (2793 m) looks different from every angle. On the way to the Fanes pasture, starting from the Pederü hut, it accompanies you all the way on your left.  
If you look at it from the Pices-Fanes pasture, it looks like a sleeping volcano. While if you look at it from the Gran-Fanes hut, it almost looks like a whale's head. 
However you look at it, it is one of the most beautiful mountains in the Fanes alpine pasture. From its summit you can see the Tofana di Mezzo, which rises from the ground like a pyramid. It can be seen as far as Croda del Becco on the Senes alpine pasture. At the top, looking down, one can see Lake Piciodel at the foot of the mountain. As you climb to the summit, Lake Limo greets you in its bright shades of blue. 
If you are lucky, you may also observe ibex grazing or resting on nearby walls.
