The 2,875 m high Sass de Putia gives its name to this mountain group, which is located between the Valle Isarco and the Val Badia.
The small Putia Group, a subgroup of the Dolomites, is located near the municipalities of Funes and San Martino in Badia, thus between the Valle Isarco and the Val Badia valleys. The highest mountain is Mt. Sass de Putia (Peitlerkofel, in German) with 2,875 m a.s.l.
The Putia ridge separates the mountain group into two parts: to the east the ridge with Mt. Sass de Putia stretches towards the Val Badia valley, to the west there’s a forested mountain ridge towards the Valle Isarco valley and the Odle di Eores mountains. Important peaks here are Mt. Tullen (2,652 m a.s.l.), the “Wälscher Ring” (2,607 m a.s.l.) and Mt. Confin (2,625 m a.s.l.). Towards south-west there is another mountain ridge with the famous Mt. Col di Poma (2,418 m a.s.l.).
In the north the Putia Group stretches until the Passo delle Erbe mountain pass in the Luson Mountains, and in the south until the Odle Group and the Puez Group. Large parts of the mountain group are protected in the Puez-Odle Nature Park. The area offers fantastic hiking tours, like to the Rif. Genova mountain hut (2,297 m a.s.l.) in the Val di Funes valley, from where the summit of the Col di Poma is easily accessible.
