The Braies Dolomites, a subgroup of the UNESCO World Natural Site Dolomites, belong to the exemplary mountain ranges of the Alps. In the north this mountain range is delimited by the Val Pusteria valley, in the south west by the Val Badia valley, while the eastern border is represented by the Valle di Landro. The Valle di Braies is name-giving for this mountain range and snakes across this mountain range. At the end of this valley, there is the so-called “pearl of the Dolomites“, the Lago di Braies.
However, not only the lakeside of the Lago di Braies is ideal for relaxing, also the high-plateau of Prato Piazza is a very popular excursion destination in all seasons of the year. Extending at an altitude of about 2,000 m asl, this high-plateau can be reached from Valle di Landro as well as Braies. Both in summer and winter, the view of the Braies Dolomites from this high-plateau is breathtaking.
The highest elevation of the Braies Dolomites are the Croda Rossa (3,146 m), further famous peaks are the Picco di Vallandro (2.839 m), the Croda del Becco (2,810 m), the Piccola Croda Rossa (2,859 m), the Campo del Cavallo Piccolo (2,594 m) and the Campo Cavallo Grande (2,559 m) as well as the Sasso del Signore (2,447 m).
