The Stevia Massif is characterised by steep dolomite walls on one side and a spacious summit plateau on the other side.
At the northern side of the Val Gardena valley, the Monte Stevia mountain is located, part of the protected Puez-Odle Nature Park. The highest point is situated at the north-west wall (2,555 m asl.), the massif also consists of towers, gorges and a high plateau with alpine meadows and the famous Stevia Mountain Hut (2,312 m asl.).
The towers which form the massif are called Steviola (2,083 m asl.), La-Porta-Tower (2,205 m asl.) and Ciastel-Tower (2,196 m asl.). In between the Val-d’Andrea Gorge and the Valaccia Gorge as well as the Pisciodel valley, Val di Ciavai valley and Val Ntaiëda valley are located.
Monte Stevia is a popular destination in summer. Along the normal way the route proceeds across the Palota and the San Silvestro wind gap. Beneath the Monte Stevia, the Rif. Firenze mountain hut at more than 2,000 m asl. on the Cisles Alp in Val Gardena is located. Also from here a mountain hike proceeds up to the summit.
