The mountain group in the western Dolomites could be considered the borderline between the Gardena valley and the Val di Fassa.
The Sassolungo Group with its round shape stretches from the Sella Group to the rocky ridges of the Catinaccio massif. The highest summit, name-giving Mt Sassolungo, boasts an altitude of 3,181 m. Together with its southwestern peak it covers almost half of the entire Sassolungo Group.
The mountain massif, originally a coral reef, is well-known both in summer and in winter: Mt Sassolungo and Mt Sasso Piatto boast several climbing routes and hiking paths, such as the Via Ferrata Oskar Schuster and the Friedrich August Path. Furthermore, a cable car connects Passo Sella with the Sassolungo ridge at 2,681 m asl, ideal starting point to walk around the mountain.
The view of Mt Marmolada and the Alpe di Siusi is simply breath-taking! In winter, skiing areas such as Plan de Gralba, Monte Pana and Ciampinoi (with the famous Saslong World Cup slope) are located at the foot of the Sassolungo Group. Also the Sella Ronda passes by.
