Braies Dolomites

Lake Braies, the Prato Piazza high plateau and the Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park are among the features of this mountain group.

The Braies Dolomites are located around the eponymous Val di Braies, a side valley of the Val Pusteria. The mountain group is bounded by the Val Pusteria in the north, the Val Badia valley in the south-west and the Val di Landro valley in the east. The latter separates the Sesto Dolomites with the famous Three Peaks of Lavaredo from the Braies Dolomites.

Large parts of the Braies Dolomites, a subgroup of the Dolomites, belong to the Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park. Also the famous mountain lake Lago di Braies is located here, in front of a breathtaking alpine backdrop, as well as the Prato Piazza high plateau. Both are popular excursion destinations and starting points for numerous hiking tours to the surrounding summits. The highest mountain is the Croda Rossa d’Ampezzo (3,146 m a.s.l.), known as most demanding three-thousander of the Dolomites among the mountaineers.

Other mountains are Mt. Picco di Vallandro (2,839 m a.s.l.), Mt. Croda del Becco (2,810 m a.s.l.), the Monte Sella di Senes (2,787 m a.s.l.), Mt. Crepe di Val Chiara (2,711 m a.s.l.) and Mt. Piz da Peres (2.507 m a.s.l.), a popular panorama mountain. Also Mt. Plan de Corones (2,275 m a.s.l.) belongs to the Braies Dolomites, a hiking area in summer and a skiing paradise in winter featuring 119 km of ski slopes and well known far beyond the borders.
