Description

The Puez-Geisler Nature Park is so spectacular in terms of its landscape and geology that it was added to the UNESCO List of World Heritage Sites in 2009. It includes every type of rock stratum that one can find in the Dolomites, making it a rich treasure trove of rocks, deposits, and sediments. The area, which is located entirely in the South Tyrol region and has special protections, can be divided into two sections. The north is covered in striking, jagged peaks, which are often referred to as the white mountains, while the southern landscape features a sprawling plateau lined with meadows and dark rocks
