Tre Cime di Lavaredo

The Tre Cime di Lavaredo, Three Picks in English, Drei Zinnen in German,  the  #threepicks are among the best-known peaks of the Alps. They are located in the Sexten Dolomites and are one of the most renowned natural wonders in the world of mountaineering. It is possible to reach this mountain group from Lake Misurina, Auronzo di Cadore and Sesto Valley/Sextental. From the summit, you can enjoy the spectacular view of the surrounding peaks and the Nature Park Tre Cime.

The Tre Cime di Lavaredo have the appearance of three enormous fingers raised towards the sky, their majestic and harmonious shapes and colours are appreciate by the experts all over the world.


The northern face of this mountain group is now in the territory of the town of Dobbiaco, but the Tre Cime di Lavaredo have been for a very long time in the territory of Auronzo di Cadore, in the province of Belluno. From 1752 the border between the two municipalities lies on the summit of the three peaks and 3/4 of the massif is still in the territory of Auronzo di Cadore, thus in the Veneto region.

The Tre Cime mountain group is traversed by the Alta Via n. 4, also known as Grohmann route.

The Tre Cime are:

  • the Cima Grande ("big peak") is the central and highest one (2.999 m a.s.l.);
  • the Cima Ovest ("western peak") is the second one (2.973 m a.s.l.);
  • the Cima Piccola ("little peak") is the third one (2.857 m a.s.l.).

The border between the territories of Auronzo di Cadore (southern face) and of Dobbiaco (northern face) lies exactly on the high crests of the three peaks, crossing them lengthwise.
