PALA DI SAN MARTINO MOUNTAIN GROUP | DOLOMITES
Pale di San Martino (pillars of San Martino) mountain group sits in the Trento province of Italy. It is then a wonderfully isolated mountain range or many years however now there is a road nearing completion that has tunneled through the most of the natural barriers and open valleys below the imposing towers of San Martino. San Martino di Castrozza is where the cable cars and ski lifts are located and the best departure point into the mountains. A ski resort town San Martino has become very trendy during the winter time and during the summer the place to enjoy a week walking. There are plenty of quaint hotels that are open during the summer time, and many of the ski lifts have been opened to transport mountain bikes as well as hikers.
The mountain group is defined by the boundary made of the Agordo valley to the east, Fassa valley to the west. the Cismon river, Passo di Cereda, and Passo S. Pellrgrino to the north. The mountain group is distinguished by many rock towers found in throughout the mountain group.
The mountain group has the spectacular landscape that the dolomites are known for and there are multiple activities to do if you decide to include this area in your vacation plans
Travel Planning of the Pale di San Martino Mountain Group
The pillars of San Martino, Pale di San Martino is extra special, the towers that make up the mountain group and the high plateau (also know as the desert), the remoteness of the area compared to other mountain groups. This area is closest to the major cities of the Veneto Region, but because of the poor access road it takes more time for you to get to the area, thus most people just go up the A22 and in the Fassa Valley and other go over to Cortina. Great hikes and mountain biking in the area.
