The 2,950 m high Sass Pordoi, a plateau-like rock summit, is accessible by cable car from the Passo Pordoi ridge.

The in 1962 constructed cable car on the Sass Pordoi in the Sella Group overcomes approx. 700 metres in altitude in 4 minutes. Like this one of the most important peaks of the Sella Group is easily accessible. On the plateau a panoramic terrace and the Rif. Maria restaurant, named after Maria Piaz, a pioneer of tourism in this area, are located.
Also a hiking tour proceeds up to the peak. The easiest route is the one from the south, the path proceeds beneath the cable car until the summit. A significantly more difficult alternative is the Pisciadù Via Ferrata with the crossing of the Sella Massif. The view from the terrace on the top of the Sass Pordoi is really breathtaking.
In the west the Alpe di Siusi and Catinaccio are visible, in the south the Val di Fassa valley and the Marmolada glacier, with 3,343 m asl. the highest mountain of the Dolomites and in the east the Sella Group and its highest peak, the Piz Boè. The latter blocks our view of other mountain groups, like the Cristallo Group, Sorapiss and the Tofane. These can be seen from the hiking path up to the top.
