Vedrette di Ries

The Vedrette di Ries mountain range is particularly popular with alpinists due to its numerous glaciated peaks.

The Vedrette di Ries mountain range extends in South Tyrol and - as sub-group of the High Tauern - also in East Tyrol. The foothills of the Vedrette di Ries extend to Brunico in the south, while in the east and west this mountain range is delimited by the Valle di Riva and the Valle Anterselva. The neighbouring mountain ranges are the Venediger Group in the north (connected by the Passo Gola), the Villgraten Mountains in the south-east, the famous peaks of the Dolomites in the south and the Zillertal Alps in the west.

Approx. 30 mountains are higher than 3,000 metres, e.g. Mt Collalto (3,436 m asl), the main peak and “King of the Vedrette di Ries”. Further peaks are the Monte Nevoso (3,358 m asl), Mt Collaspro (3,272 m asl), Mt Sasso Lungo di Collalto (3,237 m asl), the Grande Cima del Vento (3,041 m) and the Monte Magro (3,273 m asl). The Vedrette di Ries belong to the homonymous Vedrette di Ries-Aurina Nature Park.

However, with alpinists and ski alpinists this mountain range is very popular, not at least due to its striking mountains of elevated higth as well as its partly glaciated peaks. The most important mountain huts in this mountain range are the Barmer (2,610 m asl), Roma (2,274 m asl) and Vedrette di Ries (2,792 m asl) mountain huts, all ideal for mountain tours of more than one day.

Highest peak: Mt Collalto (3,436 m asl)
Territory: South Tyrol, East Tyrol
