High plateaus and alpine pastures

Several alpine pastures and high plateaus characterise the Val Gardena valley amidst the fascinating alpine world of the Dolomites.

At altitudes between 1,600 and more than 2,000 m, above the villages of the Val Gardena valley, wide alpine pastures and high plateaus stretch and invite to extensive hikes. The majestic gigantic mountains of the Val Gardena Dolomites rise above.

Among the high plateaus there is the Rasciesa Plateau with the Rasciesa Forest in the Puez-Odle Nature park as well as the Monte Pana High Plateau with the S. Cristina cross-country skiing centre and the meadows beneath the Seceda. Mountain huts are located amidst the alpine pastures, like the Curona or the Brogles hut and are popular excursion destinations for families with children.

Both in summer and in winter these alpine pastures are popular starting points or final destinations of hikes, cycle tours or sledge rides. While the smaller alps are accessible by cable cars and partly by car, the biggest high alp of Europe, the Alpe di Siusi, offers a well developed road network and good public transport connections.
