In this chapter we will discuss the majestic Sorapiss Group, which with its enormous walls dominates the southern borders of the Ampezzo area.
The Sorapiss Group, or Sorapìs, is one of the main groups in the Ampezzo Dolomites and stands out between Cortina d'Ampezzo and San Vito di Cadore. The mighty massif consists of the "Punta Sorapiss" of 3205 meters, the "Croda Marcora" of 3154 meters and the "Three Sorelle" of 3005 meters.
Symbol and jewel of these mountains is the Sorapiss lake which is located right in the middle of the awesome natural amphitheater on the northern side, not far from the Rifugio Vandelli, 1926 m. The wonderful pond, thanks to the calcareous rock present on the seabed, has an incredible light turquoise color that at dawn, thanks to the play of light, turns into the color of milk and mint. The calm waters of the lake reflects the mighty "Finger of God", 2603 meters, destination of several climbers and mountaineers.
