Sella, Dolomites


The Sella lies between the four Ladin valleys of Badia, Gherdëina, Fascia, and Fodom and is divided between the provinces of South Tyrol, Trentino and Belluno. It can be driven around by car crossing the Campolongo Pass, Pordoi Pass, Sella Pass, and Gardena Pass. In winter it is possible to ski around the entire massif by using the Sella Ronda ski lift carousel. Also each winter the alpine touring ski Sellaronda Skimarathon race is held, which leads around the entire Sella and covers 42 km of mountain trails. The same trails can be mastered by Mountain bike during the summer.

Other peaks in the massif are the Cima Pisciadù (2.985 m), the Boèseekofel (2.910 m), the four Sellatürme (highest peak 2.696 m) and Sass Pordoi (2.952 m), whose summit can be reached by funicular from Pordoi Pass. During winter the summit is the starting point for many alpine ski tours, of which the most famous are the descent through the Val Mesdì and the descent from the Pordoischarte.

Still widely covered with snow, this alpenstock looks less cliffy, as it seems to be so typical for the Dolomites.
