Hiking in the Dolomites, an insider tip
Monte Casella mountain, an under-appreciated jewel with a panoramic view
The Monte Casella is a modest mountain. It politely stands back behind its high neighbours, the pale peaks of the Sesto Dolomites and enjoys quiet and untouched beauty. It also has a unique all-round panorama view! The Dolomite hike to the Monte Casella di Dentro and Monte Casella di Fuori is a valuable secret hint for those who seek relaxation and unspoilt nature. Nowhere else but here, in the colourfully flowering meadows, will you find comparably varied Alpine flora. No wonder that the spicy smell of Monte Casella hay is not only popular for beauty and healing applications, but also for use in gourmet kitchens. The fact that this mountain has no managed huts is surely the main reason for the pristine nature of this special place. And a charming add-on: Insiders know about the cordial hospitality of Andreas Summerer, who spends the summer in his hut at Monte Casella di Fuori and will gladly offer a refreshing glass of juice and an interesting story.
