The Latemar Group, a mountain range in the Dolomites, on which peak runs the border between South Tyrol and the Trentino, is accessible from the Val d’Ega in South Tyrol as well as from the Alpe di Pampeago and Predazzo in Trentino. According to a legend, the Latemar mountains are fossilized puppets.
The mountain range is characterised by its form of a horseshoe, open towards east. It has got two subgoups: one north group which includes the peaks from the Cima Poppe (2,460 m asl) to the Torre dei Muss (2,402 m asl), whereas the mountains of the second group tower up round Mt Agnello (2,358 m asl).
However, the Latemar Group, both in winter and summer, is a perfect outdoor pleasure ground. A very popular but exhausting mountain tour is the hike to the Schenón (2,791 m asl) from the Passo di Costalunga via the Forcella Latemar Piccola.
