Mt. Pizes dl Valun (in Ladin language), a peak that rises 2,906 m into the sky, is one of the highest mountains of the Sella Group.
The Vallon Peak, located in the central eastern part of the Sella Group, gives its name to the mountain hut at its feet - in fact, the full name of the Rif. Kostner hut at 2,500 m a.s.l. is “Rifugio Franz Kostner al Vallon”. Near the mountain hut there is a small lake, called Lake Vallon.
Also the Vallon Via Ferrata, classified as C, bears the name of the 2,906 m high peak. The via ferrata starts at the Forcella del Vallon wind gap at 2,500 m a.s.l. and leads to the top of Mt. Piz Boè, the highest elevation of the mighty Sella Group.
In winter, however, the Vallon Peak becomes a popular destination for ski tours. The 5-hour tour starts in the Val di Sole valley in the Trentino and snakes its way through the Val Persa valley and via the so-called Hell Hole (Buca del Diavolo) to the 2,906 m high summit. The downhill ride follows the ascent route. By the way: the Vallon area is one of a few starting points for paragliding flights - if you would like to see the Alta Badia from another perspective.
