Tofane, Cortina d'Ampezzo

4.7
#4 of 8 in Nature in Cortina d'Ampezzo
Tofane is a mountain group in the Dolomites of northern Italy, west of Cortina d'Ampezzo in the province of Belluno, Veneto. Most of the Tofane lies within Parco naturale delle Dolomiti d'Ampezzo, a nature park.PeaksThe highest peaks of the Tofane group are Tofana di Mezzo, Tofana di Dentro, and Tofana di Rozes . Tofana di Mezzo is the third highest peak in the Dolomites, after Marmolada and Antelao . All three peaks were first climbed by Paul Grohmann along with local mountain guides, in 1863, 1864 and 1865 .GeologyThe Dolomites were formed during the Cretaceous Period, approximately 60 million years ago, due to the collision of the African and European continents. The Tofane is largely formed from the Upper Triassic rock Dolomia principale. The strata are perceptibly folded, and the mountains are finally formed by wind, rain, glaciers and rivers.TourismAccessA cable lift system goes from Cortina almost to the top of Tofane di Mezzo. There is only a short walk from the top cable car to the summit. Alternatively the via ferratas VF Punta Anna and VF Gianna Aglio can be used to reach Tofane di Mezzo.
