Col dei Bois Mountain is located within the perimeter of the Natural Park of the Ampezzo Dolomites. It is known for the bloody battles fought between the Italian and Habsburg armies in World War I.
In this specific area you can find many chamois who can be seen along the sunny slopes of the surrounding mountains, especially during the winter season. From the summit marked by a wooden cross wrapped in barbed wire, you can immediately spot the beautiful Val Travenanzes slowly winding down towards Cortina, skirting the Tofanas' vertical faces. Looking south you can see the spiky peaks of Croda da Lago, Pelmo, and Marmolada, the Queen of the Dolomites, reaching 3343 meters.
An interesting excursion from the naturalistic, as well as historical and lanscape standpoint, quite varied with wide open spaces where the eye can reach far in the distance.
