Luson Mountains

The Luson Mountains in the Valle Isarco valley extend until the Passo delle Erbe which connects the Valle Isarco and the Val Badia.

In the northwestern Dolomites the Luson Mountains are located, a subgroup of the Dolomites, composed of quartz phyllite. The mountain group is located between the Valle Isarco, the Val Pusteria and the Val Badia valleys in the municipalities of Luson, Bressanone, San Martino in Badia, Marebbe, San Lorenzo di Sebato, Chienes and Rodengo.

The Valle di Luson valley divides the same-named mountains into two zones: the Plose massif with its highest point, the 2,576 m high Monte Gabler, is a popular hiking and skiing area. The second part consists of alpine pastures, most known is the high plateau of the Rodengo Alpine Pasture, a famous excursion destination. Considerable elevations here are Mt. Muro di Luson (2,332 m a.s.l.) and the Giogo d’Asta (2,196 m a.s.l.) which offers a fantastic panoramic view.

The area is also nice for winter hiking tours, for example to the Malghe di Eores mountain pastures at the slope of Mt. Plose, to the idyllic Luson Alp with its toboggan run or the Rastnerhütte mountain hut at almost 2,000 m a.s.l. And the Plose itself becomes a popular skiing area with the longest downhill run of South Tyrol.
