Three Peaks - Dolomites

Sesto - village of the Three Peaks

Thanks to the three majestic mountains Three Peaks Sesto is also called the village of the Three Peaks. The peaks of the Three Peaks comprise:

  • the 2999 m Cima Grande (big peak) in the centre
  • the 2973 m Cima Occidentale (western peak)
  • the 2857 m Cima Piccola (small peak)

Other formations too form part of this distinctive massif, including the Punta di Frida (2792m) and the Torre Preuß (2700 m).
From the first time the Cima Grande was successfully conquered in 1869 the Three Peaks have become one of the most popular mountains in the Alps among climbers. They have been opened up through numerous climbing tours of varying degrees of difficulty and have since become a centre of Alpine climbing. Many important developments in climbing started here. The view of the steep north faces is one of the most well-known landscapes of the Alps and the landmark of the Dolomites.
