With almost 3,000 m asl, Mt Sasso Piatto - Sas plat in Ladin and Plattkofel in German - is one of the important peaks of the Sassolungo Group.
The Sasso Piatto, neighbour of Mt Sassolungo, is the most western mountain of the Sassolungo Group in the Dolomites. Probably it is named after its shape, the Ladin term Sas plat means “flat stone”. A gorgeous hike proceeds around Mt Sasso Piatto and Mt Sassolungo in approx. 5.5 hours. It is also the only peak, which can be explored without climbing.
Actually, Mt Sasso Piatto has three crests: path n° 527 proceeds from the Sasso Piatto mountain hut (2,297 m asl) at the Giogo di Fassa ridge across the west flank to the middle peak with the summit cross. Those who love climbing, can crest the 2,958 m high middle peak from east along the Oskar-Schuster Path. Highest point is the south-east peak with 2,964 m asl, the official height of Mt Sasso Piatto. And the third crest is the north-west peak which is 2,954 m high.
