Description

The Langkofel Group (German: Langkofelgruppe) is a massif in the (western) Dolomites. It separates Gröden (to the north) and the Fassa valley (to the south), as well as the Sella massif (to the east) and the Rosengarten (to the west). Northwest of the Langkofel is the Seiser Alm. The highest point in the range is the eponymous Langkofel with a height of 3181 metres. Taken together, the summits of the Langkofel form an arc which is only open towards the northwest. Within this arc there is only one small mountain, the Langkofelkarspitze, so that the group surrounds a kind of "inner courtyard".

Approach

Coming from the north on the A22 take the exit "Val Gardena - Klausen - Gröden". Follow the signs to Val Gardena until you reach Selva (1620m, German: Wolkenstein) after 50 minutes. Then drive to the Passo Sella (2240m). Short before and below the pass, behind the Passo Sella Dolomiti Mountain Resort you may park on a big parking lot.
