Hike to the highest mountain of the Alpe di Siusi: the Sasso Piatto (2,954 m)

With the public transportation you reach Saltria and then with the Florian lift you go up to the Williams hut where the hike starts. After approximately 1 hour you arrive to the Sasso Piatto hut (2,300 m). Then you proceed over grassland characterized by a rough climate, where many coloured flowers of different species grow. It will be possible to observe the luxurious flora, the lush meadows, occasionally a marmot, maybe even a chamois and the crossing from alp meadow to rocky terrain. After 30 minutes you arrive to the entrance of the Sasso Piatto climb and after 2 further hours the peak. The sensation on top is awesome, a phenomenal 360° view on the Dolomites.
