Description

One of the most popular mountains of the Dolomites, Sass Pordoi falls short of the 3,000m mark by just 48m but is well-visited nonetheless. Part of the reason for this is no doubt due to the cable car which takes visitors to the summit, which also has a restaurant and viewing platform, from which Marmolada (the largest mountain of the Dolomites at 3,343m) and the Langkofel group can be seen. It is also often used as a trailhead for summiting Piz Boè (3,152m, in part due to the cable-car access), said to be the easiest 3,000m peak in the Dolomites and the highest in the Sella Group. Sass Pordoi also has a number of routes for those not wanting to use the cable cars, with the normal non-technical routes being either a strenuous hike from Passo Pordoi to Forcella Pordoi, or a longer but less strenuous hike starting from Passo Sella through to Val Lasties and Sass Pordoi.
