If going between the Italian region of Trentino-Alto Adige and Venice you will find the mountains of the Dolomites. The highest mountain in this chain is the Marmolada, with its 3342 meters. The Dolomites are mostly from sediment and lime rock. The Dolomites are the flagship of Alto Adige and Venice. The Dolomites are not just beautiful but have a lot to offer to the tourists. For example those who are crazy about climbing can prove their climbing skills and can greatly improve their skills due to the easier and more difficult routes. For winter sports fans such as snowboarders and skiers the Dolomites offer the ideal routes. Walkers and hikers are also offered ideal hiking areas. The contrast between the green valleys and snowcapped mountains offer a picturesque image.
The National Park of the Dolomites in Belluno offers a panoramic view of the numerous millennium old rocks. The park which is located in the valleys between Cismon and Piave was founded in 1990 and comprises more than 32000 hectares. There is a breathtaking view of the entire national park from the peaks of the mountains. The landscapes are a unique contrast to each other. There are small green valleys with colorful meadows between the snow-covered mountain peaks. There are also rock tabs through vast canyons and the valleys.
Countless white and European fur-trees and beech and oak give the very special character to the national parks. Another main reason for the creation of the park was also the diversity of plants, which once again takes place here. About 1500 different plant species with precious rarities such as the bellflower Campanula morettina have attracted botanists from all over the world in the 18th century. However the lily forms the symbol of the natural park.
