General description

Extremly enjoyable excursion which, from Piz Sorega/San Cassiano crosses the white meadows of Pralongiá.

The panorama is spectacular, stretching as it does from the Lavarela to the Lagazuoi, the Marmolada glacier to the "Grup dl Sela", from Puez to Pütia, and looking North, right up to the glaciers of the Central Alps on their border with Austria.
