Interesting Aspects

This beautiful route permits to enjoy the magnificent view of Cimon della Pala, the western side of the Pale di San Martino and the unique geological structure of Crode Rosse. The habitats crossed by this path are the typically high altitude environments: here the flora shows the characteristic shape developed to resist the rigid climate.

During the short summer season, beautiful blooming also of very rare species can be observed. The grazing chamois are not that hard to see, while the performance of the steinbocks jumping on the rocks, the flight of the rock ptarmigans or of a flock of rock patridges are more rare to enjoy.
