Bocchette Centrali Brenta Dolomites Italy Iron paths – Via Ferrata alpine mountaineering
Brenta Dolomites Italy – It is amazing to think that these high peaks and walls only 300 million years ago have been the bottom of the Sea. The subsequent deposit layers of animal bones, sand and shells has created these multicolored rocks within millions of years. The Brenta Dolomites in Italy are not only big walls but also green forests, valleys and meadows where cows are grazing, torrents and high waterfalls. This is a wild environment where bears and the local population can coexist safely. The presence of many mountain lodges and huts in the Brenta-Dolomites makes the area very popular for trekking or hiking from lodge to lodge or from hut to hut on the trips of the famous via ferratas “Bocchette del Brenta”.
