From the Plan de Gralba you can perfectly see the enormous alpenstock of the Sella Group, or simply Sella, with its Sella Towers.
North of Mt Marmolata, the highest mountain of the Dolomites, and east of Mt Sassolungo there’s the Sella Group, a plateau-shaped massif in the Dolomites. The mountain group was mentioned as “Sallei” already in the 18th century in the “Atlas Tyrolensis” by Peter Anich and Blasius Hueber.
Hikers can look forward to numerous opportunities: the popular Dolomites Trail n° 2, for instance, leads right across the Sella. A cable car, moreover, will take you to the mountain peak of Sass Pardoi at 2,952 m asl, and the Sella Towers are a famous climbing destination.
Around the Sella Group there are four alpine passes: Passo Gardena, Passo Campolongo, Passo Pordoi and Passo Sella. Winter turns the area in a true paradise for skiers and snowboarders alike with the Sella Ronda, the ski round trip around the alpenstock!
Highest peak: Mt Piz Boè (3,151 m asl) on the border of the three Italian provinces South Tyrol, Belluno and Trentino
Subgroups : Boè Group, Mëisules Group, Pisciadù Group and Murfreid Group
