On the highest peak of the Supramonte

Directions

Continue on foot along the dirt road, characterised by wide hairpin bends and splendid views of the whole of Barbagia, under the high, splendid rock walls. At the top of the climb this road will reach a large widening around the town of Iscala 'e Pradu. From there you can see Punta Corrasi on the right (South), sticking out. To the east, the wide Pradu plateau opens up. The whole area is well known for its flowers, and is listed as a biotope of national interest due to the rarity and particularities of its species. Among these, one should mention the Ribes sardoum, a variety of shrub that only grows here in a few specimens. The route continues along a clear path towards Punta Corrasi, passing some granite rocks that form the altar used for the final scenes of the film The Bible (directed by John Houston). The road runs along a small flat stretch, then begins to go up around the area of Sos tuthurreris, characterized by a large joint (breaks between the rocks) in which large yew trees and a wide variety of endemic species grow. As you continue you will increasingly appreciate the wild and lunar landscape of the area, completely bare of tall vegetation, surrounded by the highest, most scenic peaks. The path is marked in red and white and reaches a grassy saddle below the highest peak, reachable by turning to the right on a clear, small path running along a short creek. From the top the view is absolutely great, and embraces much of central-northern Sardinia. You can return to the cars by the same route.
