Super Earth Pyramids

Erdpyramiden in Platten

Earth Pyramids at Platten

Approach from Bruneck towards Innichen / Toblach. At the entrance to Percha turn left towards Oberwielenbach. There are some chargeable parking spaces available. P2 should be the most interesting for visiting.

On an extremely well maintained footpath (interesting for children too) you walk upwards with medium effort for some 30 minutes, before you arrive to three secured platform with excellent views to the pyramids.

Same way back, the round trip being closed due to damages caused by heavy rain.

Up to Piz da Peres

Parking below the Plan de Corones on the Furkelsattel, 1759 m. From here, take trail N ° 3 to the Dreifingerscharte (Three Fingers Pass). At first it’s an easy forest trail, going up and down, then it gets steeper and steeper up to the pass. In principle, this is a good hiking trail – just before the pass the trail had been washed away by heavy rain. However, a lot of work has been done to allow hikers to get safely to Dreifingerscharte without having to climb.

Piz da Peres

Piz da Peres, an exciting descent …

From the Dreifingerscharte we follow the path on our right towards Piz de Peres, 2507 m.

It’a a gentle walk to the top, all the more interesting the business presents itself on the north side (the black and white photo above) and on the west side, through which we descend. You lose altitude quickly, but you’ll need to have a firm foot and sturdy shoes are welcome too.

Bormio and Corona

The decision to travel to Bormio was made more or less out of necessity: At this time, Switzerland required people arriving from Luxembourg to be quarantined for ten days by corona. That seemed to us to be highly unsuitable for our hiking ambitions in the wonderful summer weather.

Monte Gavia

That’s when the idea came up: “Let’s go to Italy!” A destination was found quickly and a nice AirBnB apartment Chalet Casericc awaited us at Andrea’s, on the slope to Bormio 2000.
A little over two weeks with great hikes between Umbrailpass, Stilfser Joch, Passo Gavia and Fuorcla di Livigno!
