Hike from Seiser Alm to Rosszähne, Italy

Hike from Seiser Alm to Rosszähne, Italy

Seiser Alm (Italian: Alpe di Siusi, Ladin: Mont Sëuc) is a Dolomite plateau and the largest high-altitude Alpine meadow (German: Alm) in Europe. Located in Italy’s South Tyrol province in the Dolomites mountain range, it is a major tourist attraction, notably for skiing and hiking, with panoramic views.

The Rosszähne (Italian: Denti di Terrarossa) are a range of peaks cut by small notches in the Schlern Group in the Dolomites. Their highest point is the Great Rosszahn, which rises about in the middle of the chain at 2653 m s.l.m..

The Rosszähne, which run in an east-west direction, are located in the border area between South Tyrol and Trentino in the western Dolomites. The South Tyrolean part is protected in the Schlern-Rosengarten Nature Park.

From mountain inn on the Seiser Alm, we hiked to the Rosszahnscharte and back. I had on this hike only 4 days to get used to the altitude.
