Very interesting excursion both from a landscape and historical point of view.
Monte Piana is a mountainous ridge located in the Val di Landro. Due to its strategic position it was the theater of war during the First World War. The fighting on the summit was very bloody and it is now an open-air museum. A curiosity: Monte Piano, the northern peak, was occupied by the Austro-Hungarian army, while Monte Piana which is the southern peak was garrisoned by the Italians.
The particular position of the mountain offers wonderful views of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, Monte Cristallo, Cadini di Misurina and Croda Rossa d’Ampezzo.
From Lake Landro / Dürrensee (1406 m) take path no. 6 for Monte Piano. At the crossroads, take the Sentiero dei Pionieri / Pionierweg, always n. 6 and climb up to Monte Piano (2306 m) where the Croce di Dobbiaco / Toblacher Kreuz Cross (2305 m) is located. Now follow the historical path and go towards Monte Piana passing among the remains of the fortifications of the First World War. At the Forcella dei Castrati (2272 m) take path 111 up to Monte Piana (2324 m) and the large wooden cross (2310 m). Return to Lake Landro by taking the Tourist Path no. 6A. Arrived at the plain (1460 m) turn right following path 6B and then with path 6 you return to the starting point.
