It is the most frequented and known Mount of the Plateau, but also a place remebered by many for the events occurred during the First World War (Battle of Ortigara, 1917). It still preserves proofs and monuments like the half column located on the peak.
Without any doubt, this path is the most complete and meaningful itinerary to visit the battleheld of Ortigara stage of some of the bloodiest battles fight during the First World War on the Italian front line.
It is then necessary to verify weather forecasts and depart early in the morning.
Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
The usual outfit for excursions to the mountain is advised (hiking boots and clothing, a raincoat).
