Extremely enjoyable excursion which, from San Cassiano/Piz Sorega, crosses the breathtaking meadows of Pralongiá, renowned for their profusion of flowers.The panorama here is spectacular, stretching from the Lavarela to the Lagazuoi summits, from the Marmolada to the Grup dl Sela, from Puez to Pütia and looking to the north, right up to the glaciers of the Central Alps on their border with Austria.
