Bosconero Group

In this chapter we discuss one of the most characteristic, wildest and most incredible areas of the Dolomites, the Bosconero Group.

The Bosconero Group, located in the province of Belluno, is one of the mountainous groups of the Zoldo Dolomites, has an almost triangular shape and is composed of rocks formed by dolomites with marls and limestone of different colors. In particular it is located between the lower Zoldana Valley, Cervegana Valley and the Piave Valley and is famous for its steep valleys thickly covered by mountain pine, coniferous and beech woods.

The imposing Dolomitica rock tower, clearly visible from Forno di Zoldo, is the 2,468-meter Sasso di Bosconero, the highest peak in the whole group. Among the most known and popular peaks we find the Sassolungo di Cibiana of 2,413 meters, the Sfornioi of 2425 meters, the Sasso di Toanella of 2,430 meters and the Rocchetta Alta of 2,412 meters. The Bosconero Group is a little known and popular mountain group, compared to the most famous Dolomite giants of the Ampezzo area. In fact, this wild area has only become a destination for mountain enthusiasts and hikers for some years.

Dark and mysterious place, thanks to the characteristics of the inaccessible mountain and the imagination of the inhabitants of the place. Often these lands, in fact, are frequented only by hunters and woodsmen. The few abandoned pastures and consequently the few pastures have contributed to the charm of these mysterious valleys. Walking in the dense, damp and dark woods, we dive into a fairy-tale and fascinating path, up to the Lago delle Streghe, which is located near the Source of Eternal Youth.
