Biscurri Plateau

THE PLATEAU OF THE BISCURRI

A really spectacular hike to enjoy the magical winter landscapes.

Starting at the Pianoro Campitelli, at an altitude of 1450 meters, we will climb up into the beech wood until reaching the edge of the forest, at an altitude of 1700 mt. There we will find the magnificent scenery of the mountains of Meta, in their winter appearance. Here begins the vast karst plateau of Biscurri, the Vi'scurj in the local dialect: the small valleys and hills, shaped by the weight of ancient glaciers and the force of the waters generated by their dissolution, are crowned by the majestic peaks of Mount Meta, Mount Tartarus, Top Biscurri, Mountain Honey. This place, attainable safety in the middle of winter with the help of the snowshoes, allows everyone to experience the majesty, the greatness and the strength of the mountains and feel the deep respect that is due.

With a little luck it is possible to spot the large group of chamois, which lives on the ridges of the area.
