Flora and fauna

Spruce forests characterise a large part of the Three Peaks Nature Park, named after the world-famous Three Peaks

The Three Peaks Nature Park is composed above all of rocks, stony ridges and debris. The area is surrounded in its eastern part, between Mt. Rocca dei Baranci and the Passo di Monte Croce di Comelico mountain pass, by subalpine spruce forests, but also larches, fir trees and birches grow here. Furthermore, you will see the Potentilla nitida, the Yarrow, the Crocus and the Bellflower. Species of animals such as the Eurasian pygmy owl, the Tengmalm's owl, the black woodpecker and the European roe deer live in this protected area.

The undisputed king of the high mountains, however, is the golden eagle. In oder to protect the wonderful flora and fauna even better, the nature park is part of the European-wide Natura 2000 sites. The most famous peaks of the nature park are Mt. Cima Undici (3,092 m a.s.l.), the Monte Popera (3,046 m a.s.l.), Mt. Cima Dodici (3,094 m a.s.l.), the Monte Paterno (2,744 m a.s.l.) and of course the impressive Three Peaks of Lavaredo (2,999 m a.s.l.). There is only one larger lake in the nature park, which is Lake Landro in the eponymous valley, whereas Lake Dobbiaco is located exactly on the border between the Fanes-Senes-Braies and Three Peaks Nature Parks.
