Between Corvara, La Villa and San Cassiano there’s a special natural highlight at 2,100 m a.s.l. - the Pralongià High Plateau known as the “Amphitheatre of the Dolomites” for the stunning panoramic views it offers: it includes the Fanes Group with Mt. Piz Cunturines, the Puez Group with Mt. Sassongher and the mighty glacier of Mt. Marmolada. In between there’s the homonymous mountain hut (2,157 m a.s.l.), dating back to 1932, which also offers overnight stays.
The high plateau invites both in summer and winter to beautiful snowshoe tours, MTB rides and hikes: the Alta Badia High Route (6 days) as well as the Dolomite High Route no. 9 pass here. From the wide and easy paths of the highland you can ascend to the peak of Mt. Piz Sorega, the Col Alto and the Piz la Ila. The Pralongià High Plateau is accessible by the homonymous funicular (2 sections) starting near the Alta Badia Golf Club in Corvara.
