Dolomites High Route n. 2
The Dolomites High Route n. 2 was among the first of 10 “official” Dolomites High Routes to be described and signposted. The High Route is also known as the "way of the legends" as it passes through Dolomites mountains and valleys rich in myths and legends: For example the Odle group and the Sella group with the legends of the Ladin people or Feltre with the tales of ogres and witches. The multi-day excursion can be completed in several stages going from north to south. Starting point is Bressanone/Brixen, the quaint town of South Tyrol, rich in history. Arrival is the town of Feltre with the river Piave, witnessed or some of the tragic events of World War I. The route crosses three provinces, Bolzano, Trento and Belluno and 10 mountain groups (Plose, Pütia/Peitlerkofel, Odle/Geisler, Puez, Sella, Padon, Marmolada, Bocche, Pala, Feltre group), where Plose, Padon and the Lusia-Bocche group are not part of the Dolomites. The Dolomites High Route n. 2 offers a nice variety of hiking and climbing and the chance to discover art and culture. So, for example, is worth a visit the city of Bressanone with its museums and works of art and, not to forget, the many historical sites of the 1st World War that you meet along the way.
