In the Passo Rolle (Rolle Pass) area, an historical front during the Great War, there is a route you can take in order to discover the tunnels and trenches that twist and turn along the Cavallazza mountain ridge until reaching the Colbricon Lakes , a natural paradise which was already a settlement site during the Mesolithic era.

Mountain Guides

In the second half of the 19th century the first so-called "travellers" who were generally either English or German came to our valleys; They had a very sophisticated culture that used to enhance the value of trips, explorations and adventures in general. Thanks to their spirit of discovery and to the fact that they were relatively well-off, they took the historical opportunity to climb and name our Dolomite peaks for the very first time, which were undiscovered at that time, thus earning a place in the history of mountaineering.
