Puez Group

The Passo Gardena mountain pass (2,121 m a.s.l.) separates the Puez Group in the western Dolomites from the Sella Group.

The Puez Group is bounded by the Val Gardena in the south and by the Val Badia in the east. The Passo Gardena is the crossing between these two valleys. In the north-west the Puez Group borders the Odle Group, both give the name to the beautiful Puez-Odle Nature Park.

Two side valleys, the Vallunga and the Zwischenkofeltal, divide the Puez Group - Puezgruppe in German and Gruppo del Puez in Italian - into two zones. In the western part the Monte Stevia (2,555 m a.s.l.) and the famous Piz de Puez peaks with the near Col de Puez (2,723 m a.s.l.) are located. In the eastern part the Gardenaccia High Plateau, Mt. Sassongher (2,665 m a.s.l.) and the Cir Group (2,592 m a.s.l.), which is accessible via hiking paths and vie ferrate, can be found.

In summer, several hiking tours also lead to the mountain huts in the Puez Group. Among them the Rif. Puez mountain hut (2,475 m a.s.l.), which is accessible from Col Pradat in Colfosco, the viewpoint under Mt. Sassongher, within about 2 hours, or from Selva Gardena within 5 hours. And the Rif. Stevia mountain hut at 2,312 m a.s.l. is accessible within 4.5 hours from the village of Santa Cristina in the Val Gardena valley.
