The summit of Col Bechei can be reached from the Limo Pass. It is one of the few mountains on the Fanes alp where you can see ibex.
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.

Directions
FANES - COL BECHEI (2793m, H: 2 hours)
From the pasture of Fanes we will walk along the lake shore and then take the zigzag route which runs up across meadows and scree leading to the eastern rocky ridge. We continue northwards to the western ridge to reach the summit (2,793 m, 2 hours from Fanes). Return via the same route (3 hours).
How to get there
By express highway Rosenheim-Kufstein-Innsbruck-Brenner up to exit "Brixen", where you continue toward the Pustertal (Val Pusteria). After about 20 km on the Pustertal na-tional road, always heading toward Bruneck, you turn off to your right just before St. Lorenzen, into the Gadertal, heading towards Alta Badia. The SS244 carries you up to San Vigilio.
