The Brenta Dolomites
The Brenta Dolomites - Unesco World Heritage sice 2009 - is the only Dolomitic mountain group that rises west of the Adige river. For over a hundred years it has been a destination for alpinists and hikers from allover the world because it offers an amazing variety of climbs, equipped mountain routes, paths as well as dozens of alpine refuge and bivouac.
It extends about 40 Km from north to south and 12 Km from east to west. The natural boarders are Val di Sole to the north, Val di Non, Molveno Lake and Paganella to the East, Valli Giudicarie to the South and Val Rendena to the West. The whole mountain group is included in the Adamello Brenta Natural Park.
The Brenta Dolomites are distinguished by their suggestive rocky towers, which at sunrise and sunset glow a characteristic pink colour, and for their impressive natural scenery.
