Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Trentino-Alto Adige / Province of South Tyrol / Sesto / Snowpark Tre Cime
The Tre Cime di Lavaredo, also called the Drei Zinnen, are three distinctive battlement-like peaks, in the Sexten Dolomites of northeastern Italy. They are probably one of the best-known mountain groups in the Alps. The three peaks, from east to west, are: Cima Piccola / Kleine Zinne ("little peak")Cima Grande / Große Zinne ("big peak")Cima Ovest / Westliche Zinne ("western peak").For Snowpark Tre Cime and beyond, use our Sesto sightseeing app to get the most from your Sesto vacation.
The peaks are composed of well-layered dolostones of the Dolomia Principale (Hauptdolomit) formation, Carnian to Rhaetian in age, as are many other groups in the Dolomites (e.g., the Tofane, the Pelmo or the Cinque Torri).
Until 1919 the peaks formed part of the border between Italy and Austria. Now they lie on the border between the Italian provinces of South Tyrol and Belluno and still are a part of the linguistic boundary between German-speaking and Italian-speaking majorities. The Cima Grande has an elevation of 2999m. It stands between the Cima Piccola, at 2857m, and the Cima Ovest, at 2973m.
The first ascent of the Cima Grande was on August 21, 1869, by Paul Grohmann with guides Franz Innerkofler and Peter Salcher. The Cima Ovest was first climbed exactly ten years later, on August 21, 1879, by Michel Innerkofler with G. Ploner, a tourist. The Cima Piccola was first climbed on July 25, 1881, by Michel and Hans Innerkofler. The routes of these three first ascents are still the normal ascent routes; the Cima Piccola's route is the most difficult of the three.

Incredible place with amazing views wherever you look. It’s hard to believe the scale of the three chimneys when you get up close to them!
The hike and the views are absolutely great but so are the some many other places in this area. Personally I would prefer a lesser known hike if I knew how crowded this place is. If you do choose to come do it early in the morning. Traffic up to the parking and through the pay station is mess.
