Loop hike between the spectacular Dolomite walls of the Latemar Massif. The tour takes its name from the leaning rock towers like the one in the Tuscan city.

Latemar Massiv is on the border between Trentino and South Tyrol Regions. From the geological point of view it is an atoll which emerged form the tropical sea. That is why it is possible to find ammonites and shells in the rocks.

The highest peak is the Torre Diamantidi (2,842 m). The excursion to Torre di Pisa allows you to immerse yourself in this .... sea of rocks! white, outstretched to the sky, eternal, as only the Dolomites can be.

Author’s recommendation

The best place to take a pic of the famous Torre di Pisa is the flat area behind the mountain hut.

Do not miss the classic photography that, playing with perspective, allows you to sustain the tower with one hand!

Quando siamo stati noi abbiamo incontrato qualche cane. Andavano sciolti senza guinzaglio ovviamente rispondendo ai comandi. È un po’ in pendenza e non facilissimo.. dipende se il cane è abituato.
Question from Stefano Simioni · July 06, 2021 · Community
Buongiorno, vorremmo fare questa camminata ma nel gruppo qualcuno soffre di vertigini. Leggo che ci sono dei passaggi attrezzati, questo significa che ci sono dei punti particolarmente esposti? Se ci sono, si trovano prima o dopo i rifugio torre di Pisa partendo da passo Feudo. Grazie

Ciao, la parte da Passo Feudo è fattibile, ho visto anche famiglie con bambini. Consiglio poi di fare il percorso a ritroso e di non valicare la montagna, lie più difficoltosa la situazione.

Buongiorno Giovanni, con la macchina da Pampeago si può proseguire fino alla partenza della seggiovia Tresca (visibile a sinistra) dove trova un ampio parcheggio. Dopo quel punto c'è il divieto di transito.

Escursione indubbiamente affascinante e suggestiva nella sua parte centrale, a partire dal rifugio Torre di Pisa e per i successivi 2 km. Fare attenzione alla breve ma ripida discesa in disarrampicata alla Forcella dei Camosci, soprattutto con residui di neve o roccette bagnate. Il percorso si compie in 4 ore circa.

Percorso tosto, per chi non è abituato al trekking. Salendo da Pampeago con la seggiovia ci sono 20 minuti per arrivare a Passo Feudo e da lì circa 1 ora e mezzo (con varie pause per riprendere fiato) fino alla torre di Pisa. La prima parte è fattibile, l’ultima parte tosta in mezzo ai sassi, non del tutto consigliata per i bambini, a meno che non siano super avventurieri! La vista dal Rifugio merita la fatica. Da qui ci vogliono circa altre 2/2,5 ore per raggiungere il Rifugio Oberholz; qui il percorso si fa più duro, costellato da numerosi sali e scendi su ghiaia molto scivolosa. Dal rifugio poi in circa 40 minuti si torna al punto di partenza completando l’anello. Quindi consigliata, ma non adatta a tutti, soprattutto se si soffre di vertigini o si hanno ginocchia instabili.
