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 valley in the south and by the Val Badia valley 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: You may visit the associated Puez-Odle Visitor Centre, a new construction, in the Val di Funes. Two side valleys, the Vallunga and the Antersasc Valley, divide the Puez Group or Puezgruppe into two zones. In the western part the Monte Stevia (2,555 m a.s.l.) and the two Piz de Puez peaks - the Eastern and the Western Peak - with the nearby 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 tours lead to the cosy mountain huts in the Puez Group: The hike from Selva to the Puez Hut and the one to the Stevia Mountain Hut start in the Gardena Valley, whereas the hike from the Col Pradat to the Puez Hut begins in the Val Badia. The above mentioned Gardena Pass is one of the four mountain passes, which can be conquered in winter during the famous Sella Ronda.
