The Popera Group

In this chapter we discuss one of the most incredible and evocative areas of the Sesto Dolomites, a World Heritage Site, the Popera Group.

The Popera Group is a small mountain group of the Alps which is located after the Croda dei Toni Group, on the border between the province of Belluno and that of Bolzano. The SOIUSA subdivides it into: subgroup of Cima Undici, subgroup of Croda Rossa di Sesto and Bastione Cima Bagni-Aiarnola.

Among the major peaks we can point to Cima Undici, with its 3,092 meters, and Popera Mount with its 3,046 meters. In particular, the first ascent to Mount Popera dates back to 1874 when, climbing through the basin of Busa di Dentro, S. Siorpaes and M.Holzmann conquered the summit. Furthermore, the massif of the Gruppo del Popera was fiercely contested during the hard battles of the First World War.
