  • A very atmospheric place. Beautiful, beautiful Canyon Dam and impressive mountain in the reservoir to be just off the ground. You can just try to imagine a 90-foot wave, overflowing through the dam. Very cool to walk through the tunnel, there's chic observation point.

  • Every year in late September, non-competitive running event is organised on the places of the Vajont, infamous for the wave that has overflowing the dam razing entire villages. A black page in Italian history, that we weren't taught anything unfortunately. I attended for the first time in this race by choosing the path of 10 Km having little physical training that you require. The most beautiful and interesting is that from 25 Km but, in fact, training and good physical stamina. Many people, 6000 participants who go to learn about paths that are closed by iron railings throughout the year. Locations, often in the dark, along hand-hewn tunnels which were used to transport materials for the construction of the dam on a place where no one had ever thought of building nor the warnings of Monte Toc, they stopped the arrogance of the man. And cross the landslide of the Toc, the old Colomber ... And nature that you are shooting what has been taken away careless of everything and everyone. The dead remain, many who still alleggiano in the dam to a warning of what the human being is not as evolved as he believes. The route was well organized, with assistance and eateries along the trail, trained to aid for any possible emergency. There is only one point he plays against. Not everyone knows the story of the dam, so I found some information panel that could sum up, in short, the most important points of the building and its end unbecoming. Technical data are useful but do not help to fully understand the tragedy if someone tells you. It's something you should expect. Really. For those wishing to participate in the next year, can book both online and directly to the tourist office in Longarone.

  • A tremendous catastrophe that is commemorated with photographs and historical documents that describe the events. The Vajont dam, from its construction to the severance of the rock from Mount Toc which caused a tragic tidal wave hitting the town of Longarone, the October 9, 1963. Is touching retrace all the highlights of that sad day; the efforts, the will and perseverance of the people close to those brothers that the Italian sciagura had lost everything--starting with the loved ones. The visit is a must to become aware of that tragedy will remain forever in our history. In Fortogna, not far from Longarone, may be visited the cemetery burial national monument where they found about 2000 victims.
