Dolomites UNESCO Geotrail - Stage 3: from the Karer Pass to the Tierser Alpl Hut

Stage 3 of the 10-day UNESCO Geotrail through the Dolomites leads from the Passo di Costalunga/Karer Pass through the heart of the Catinaccio/Rosengarten mountain range, past the reef of the Schlern and on to the Rifugio Alpe di Tires/ Tierser Alpl Hut. This mountain range, one of the most beautiful of the Pale Mountains and also one of the most interesting from a geological perspective, has been casting its spell over mountain climbers for hundreds of years. As a Geotrail route, stage 3 also gives hikers a fascinating insight into the geology and creation of the breathtaking Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2009.
