The localities of the Val Pusteria: Sesto

sesto val pusteria

In the area of the Three Peaks in Val Pusteria there is a hidden pearl in the mountains. Sesto is one of the favorite destinations for mountaineers who come to Val Pusteria to immerse themselves in the beauty of nature. Especially on the nearby Tre Cime di Lavaredo, a Unesco heritage site and an unmissable stop for those on holiday in our valley.

Sesto is worth visiting in every season, even in winter when the easy connections with Monte Elmo - Croda Rossa allow you to go skiing on the more than 200 km of slopes in the Dolomites.

In summer there are many excursions on foot for all adventurers, even the less experienced. In addition to the great peaks, the valley floor is also full of breathtaking landscapes, walking or cycling, and scattered huts to visit thanks to the tour of the huts that will pass through a panoramic route visiting the Malga Nemes, the Malga Klammbach and the Malga Coltrondo between the others.

To reach the Fondovalle refuge and the splendid panoramic view, we follow a path made of splendid mountain pine woods and boundless meadows. Also suitable for families is the "the milk mile" thematic trail that takes us to discover the processing of milk, the Schnullermeile trail with playgrounds along the route and the Path of the Mills to name a few.

The village of Sesto includes the hamlets of Moso and San Vito which are worth a visit once here. The unspoiled surroundings of the area promise relaxation at first sight. One of the first areas to visit is definitely the Val Fiscalina, surrounded by the peaks of the Sesto Sundial and full of well-equipped places where you can treat yourself to a day dedicated to good food and contact with nature. The most beautiful refuges that can be found starting from Val Fiscalina towards the three peaks, at the Locatelli Refuge. The route takes us to beautiful meadows full of mountain flowers, fantastic views and the Lakes of the plains. Going instead to the Rigufio Fondovalle we are directly in the heart of the Dolomites: opposite is the spectacle of the Croda Rossa di Sesto with part of the famous Sundial (which we talked about here).

In Sesto even museum and culture enthusiasts will not be left out of breath. In the area absolutely worth visiting is the museum of Rudolf Stolz, and the museum of cribs, and a visit to the Church of Saints Peter and Paul, which stands out over the whole town.
