Between the Valle Isarco, the Val Pusteria and the Val Badia valleys, among others in the municipalities of Chines and S. Lorenzo di Sebato, the Luson Mountains can be found. They are a subgroup of the Dolomites with quite low summits. Well-known is the Passo delle Erbe mountain (Würzjoch) in this group, which connects the Val Badia with the Valle Isarco.
The Luson Mountains are named after the eponymous valley which divides the mountain group into two blocks: one of them is the Plose mountain, a famous skiing and hiking area near Bressanone in the Valle Isarco valley, the other one is the high plateau of the Alpe di Rodengo pasture.
The highest mountain is the Großer Gabler with its 2,576 m a.s.l., a popular panoramic mountain near Bressanone. Other considerable mountains are the Monte Muro (2,332 m) and the Cima Lasta (2,196 m), which offers a fantastic panoramic view.
