The Well-Worn Route and the Path Less Traveled
The Langkofel Group (Italian: Gruppo del Sassolungo) is a massif in the (western) Dolomites. It separates Gröden (to the north) and the Fassa valley (to the south), as well as the Sella massif (to the east) and the Rosengarten (to the west). Northwest of the Langkofel is the Seiser Alm. The highest point in the range is the eponymous Langkofel with a height of 3,181 metres. Taken together, the summits of the Langkofel form an arc which is only open towards the northwest. Within this arc there is only one small mountain, the Langkofelkarspitze, so that the group surrounds a kind of "inner courtyard"

Famous is not only the mountain range itself, but also the “Città dei Sassi” (city of stones) at the foot of the Sassolungo Group, which is characterised by a rich flora and fauna.
