Above Pordoi Pass in Sella Group, Dolomites, see glacier-clad Marmolada and green Bindelweg, Italy.
A lift from Passo Pordoi up to Sass Pordoi in the Sella Group gives a sweeping view of Dolomites peaks including their highest, glacier-clad Marmolada (3343 meters / 10,968 feet), Italy. From Pordoi Pass on state highway 48 (Grand Strader delle Dolomiti), take the rapid cable car ascent or hike up to the restaurant on Sass Pordoi at 2952m. Pordoi Pass (or Pordoijoch, 2239 meters/7346 feet) is the highest surfaced road traversing a pass in the Dolomites. On the Padon chain in the foreground (a ridge of volcanic origin carpeted with lush green pasture and wildflowers), we highly recommend hiking the Bindelweg/Viel del Pan trail starting from Pordoi Pass. The Dolomites are part of the Southern Limestone Alps, Europe. UNESCO honored the Dolomites as a natural World Heritage Site in 2009.
